Project Information

first a large thank you to lisa "dustbunny" for the idea
they are 1 3/8 by 1 1/4 i went a different route on the key string
what i used was all the left over center rings my daughter had from all the pens she has been making.
she usually uses a piece of complementary wood or acrylic 24 in all. i don't now how to link her post to this or i would as she gave a good in site as to how to make them. the ball chain is cheep 20 for less than $3.00
at a local craft store. these all being end grain they sucked up finish used wipe on poly I will be taking them to the farmers market i sell at every week today and see how they do (free key chain with every purchase of $50.00 or more)

Keep it up.

Wow Eddy,
How did I miss this one !! My apologies for letting this slip by : (
I love the pen ring idea, gives a little extra strength and pizazz to the "board".
I am glad you stole…uuhhmmm….copied the idea and expanded on it.
The chains are a great idea too.
I'm definitely going to copy the copies…LOL
Awesome !!: )

Lisa
