Another batch of 25 pens headed to our men and women in uniform serving around the world.

Thanks to the generosity of architect Robert Martens of Green Bay, these pens were turned from Leopardwood and Padauk blanks. Martens is not only an architect, but is also a superb craftsman. The wood for these pens was left over from some of his recent projects.

Since I started turning pens, I have done 560+ pens for uniformed service personnel and veterans.

Gerry, I feel bad that I haven’t sent your wood! I just looked at it on the bench today (but that don’t feed the bulldog, I know). I really admire what you are doing and will get some wood to you!
