My oldest son will be getting married this December. Several months ago he gave me the honor of making the groomsmen’s gifts for his wedding. The “Cigar Pen” has been a favorite that I find generally appeals to men, so this is the kit that I chose to use for this occasion. The blanks that I show in the 4th picture were given to me last year as a Christmas gift from my “daughter-in-law to-be”. It brought a full circle of sorts, for me to be able to take these items that were given to me by this lovely lady, and turn them back around to be gifts for their wedding. Eleven different types of wood for eleven different groomsmen. The last picture is a special gift that I will be giving my son. It is a Cigar Pen, like the his groomsmen, however it is made out of holly. Unfortunately, this picture does not show the amazing beauty of this wood. I chose this specially for him since it is so boldly different than the other pens, it is “white” like a wedding, and it is made of holly which is one of the main woods of the current season! Oh well… far TMI than everyone wanted to know!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year folks!!

Never TMI. Always better with a story. Beautiful work.

Beautiful set of pens, like the idea of making them all different woods.
