Ok, so I have another 2 or three Christmas Gifts to finish for those we will see later this month. Don’t have all of the bits I need for the project, so decided to clean up a bit in the shop yesterday. Found several pen blanks I made back in November, whit cleaning the shop and generated more chips.
4 Atlas kits with assorted cut offs of
Ambrosia Maple
Purple Heart
1 Workshop Pencil in
Purple Colorwood

The black one will go on my desk since it seemed to be a bit short and I pushed the mechanism in too far. The rest will go on my table at the upcoming Spring Craft Fair.

Hope everyone gets a chance to get some stuff done this weekend, even if it is not what was in the plan.

Yup, BTDT :) All my Christmas projects just arrived in the mail the other day! One was a new style click pen kit that of course I had to make one just to check them out, called groove very well made (German) brass mechanics.
Never thought about selling some, good idea:)

Thanks Dave, I have a small collection of oops pens that I use for myself. Like to use them when I can.

Andre, Sounds like some good quality stuff. The selling can be a bit of a challenge, pens are just part of what I sell and to be honest they don’t sell all that well. Always worth a shot though if you have some nice looking ones.

Thanks Tony. Now if I can just focus on this gift list. :)
