For the recent “turningboxswap2020” I made a set of hopefully what will be useful items for Keebler (who was also the moderator) Starting with the Survival Pen and using Bubinga for the body I wanted to have a dark enough wood on the other pieces that were all chrome kits to contrast so I wen with some Katalox I had on the shelf. Used it to add accents or lids to the rest of the pieces. In addition to the pen I turned a Mechanical pencil kit from Penn State, A pill holder or stash key chain, A bottle opener key chain and finally the newest kit from Craft Supplies a key chain lighter.
Made one of the lighters for myself to try the kit out. Pretty nice have to see how long it will hold fluid.

Best part about this swap is my daughter was able to get involved as well and did her own stuff and swap. We will post that soon as her first official post on LJs

Now onward to the BBQ Swap. Come over and Join us if you haven’t already.

Those kits really turned out great Chris. I need to quit seeing what you turn as it makes me want to buy them all.

Very well done Chris! You lathe guys make it look so easy… but I’m guessing it was still a lot of work to create this collection of pieces!
I’ll have to try doing this kind of stuff one of these days! As soon as I get the store done and open so I can concentrate on my workshop again…
See you at the BBQ swap my friend!
