I can't make Friday, but I can help Saturday, after around 10AM. I can always help out ahead of time with drilling/tubing blanks if you need too.

I'm going into the Woodcraft in Harrisburg PA tomorrow to turn pens and "mentor" those who want to turn a first-time pen.

Well; I'm back from turning. I turned 5 pens and helped several others turn their first pen!

The highlight of the day was a brother and sister brought in by their grandmother. The boy was 11, his sister was 9. The father is in Iraq. So we pitched in and helped them each make a pen.
