Default It took 20 years

My absolutely wonderful wife of 2 years has just given me a wonderful Father's Day gift by helping me reduce, totally reorganize, and label my special personal pen blank collection. She was so excited about it, she now wants to join the group and be called ilikewood.too (I'm ilikewood). They are alphabetized, organized, shelved, labeled, and just the best have been selected for my personal keeps. Absolutely LOVE my wife!!!

I see you have lots of space to add to the collection.
Hopefully, there is enough room for another lathe for your Mrs. She deserves one.

Unfortunately, that is my garage and not a shop. That's one of the reasons I had to reduce my stock....I've got no shop anymore.

Thanks Mal. You should have seen it a few years ago. I had 5 times as many. It was starting to be a burden.

What happened to the shop? Did it get taken over as a sewing room???
Great to have a wife like that, prepared to help out and want to turn as well.

I ended up getting a divorce a few years back. Moved into a townhouse and then married this great gal....who loves wood and likes to turn. AND hey....don't make fun of sewing....I made all my girl's rodeo queening dresses and can sew pretty dang good. Of course, that made me the freak of the queening circuit. LOL
