Well I bought some slimeline pen kits to work on with my 15 year old son. Long story short we are addicted. These things are fun to make and we got to spend some good quality shop time together. I feel like he is going to be a future lumber jock and that is so cool. He really likes to take his time and do it as perfect as he can. If that is all it takes is a lathe to bring us closer hell I’ll get a couple more haha. Anyways thanks for looking and if any of you have not tried to make these pen kits they are easy quick and fun to make. keep those chips flying boys and girls.

My condolances. If you find a cure, let me know.

Seriously, nice finish. Check out Kip & Rex Vol I DVD for Slimline variations.
