Default Hello from Salinas, CA

Hi folks,

First off, thank you Jeff for the warm welcome. You made me feel right at home.

As for me, I am retired and started making pens about one month ago. I started with wood blanks and did my first acrylic yesterday. My pens have all been from the SlimLine product line.

I had some experience with wood in the past, I was a union carpenter for over 20 years. Mostly commercial work. It is fun to be making sawdust on a much smaller scale now.

I look forward to reading and learning from you good people.

Welcome Marc!
Open your brain and let all the info flow in.

On a side note, I lived in Salinas in 1983 when I was stationed at Fort Ord.
Lived across from the rodeo grounds (it may not even be there now....).

don't go there, under construction........
