Had a great day with our intern pastor today. Ate a meal and then went to the workshop. Brandon has almost no woodworking skills. Never worked a wood lathe. He is leaving soon for his home state of Michigan, and we may never see him again. He was a quick learner on the lathe, and was soon cranking out the pens. He didn’t like to use the skew, could not hold it right. His real chanange was pressing his pens together. I had to give him a hand on one that the transmission bent while pressing. We were in the shop for several hours, so he wasn’t too fast, but we had a good time. I hope that along with his spiritual training that he might be a woodworker some day and be on here with fellow lumberjocks.! Thanks for reading!

certainly doesn’t look that happy in pic #3 :-) I am sure you have helped him make a “forever memory”.

Great way to say thank you and create a fond memory.

I think you’re sure to see him again some day….. even if it’s not until that day ;^)
