« Part 8: week two, in review Part 9 of 30 projects in 30 days series Part 10: week three in re-view »

I didn’t take on this challenge having to make a project every day, just start and finish 30 of them in 30 days. Well, this week is looking to be rather busy… so I took advantage of the rainy day, and get a few things knocked off. Now I won’t have to sweat it at the end of the day… or have to play catch-up come next weekend. I’ve been on too good of a roll to let things slip now.

Fortunately, I’d already glued up a bunch of blocks for rings and such, but I need to get some more pen blanks prepped… I’m thinking of trying out a new style of pen, but which should I order???

The problem with rings and such, is that each new size is really more like three projects, what with having to make a jam chuck for finishing the outside and a sanding jig small enough to get inside. Anyhow here’s a sneek peek of the coming weeks projects to tide you over until I get a free minute to post them:

yep, thats a teeny tiny ring, and a couple of bigguns.

These look good. The biguns could be napkin rings. Just need a couple more for a set.

Keep it up.

your rings look great.

as for the pen kit, I like the Jr. Gent (with non-postable cap) from Craft Supplies USA the best.

more like towel rings scrappy…

I’ve been looking at that one too Darryl, I think I traded for a completed one of those in the last round of the pen swap. I don’t know why but I’m a little anxious about getting the grain to line up perfectly with the cap. Its easy to align the euros, slimlines and cigars, no chance for messing those up. well, I do have a Craft Supplies gift card from Santa to use still….

Some really nice looking rings there. Can’t wait to see the final results.
