Been working on a couple projects in the shop after finally getting some free time. The first two pictures are
of a box I made to set my Jet drum sander on. The top drawers will hold my flat sheets of sandpaper and sanding items, while the botom drawers will hold the rolls of sandpaper for the drum sander. The third picture is some cast pens that I did. One is a cast circuit board, one is cast straw and the last one is cast cactus. I really like the circuit board one. The last picture are some pens that will be sent to Freedom Pens for the service men and women serving in harms way. Please keep these men and women in your thoughts and prayers to return home safely to their loved ones and family.

Thanks Matt, your comments are appreciated. The pen kit is a comfort pen from PSI. I has a rubber boot for the bottom portion of the pen, but I usually don’t use it. The finish is brushed satin.

A nice looking “box” for your sanders!
