I have a freind who came home from nam with a Purple Heart. Now he has this thing about the wood Purpleheart and I have always wanted to make him a nice pen.
The only credit I can take for the blank is that I talked Wolftat (Neil) into making it for me. The two woods are Dogwood and PurpleHeart. I will be seeing my friend in two weeks and he has no ideal about this pen at all.

That looks fantastic. Kudos to both of you. I'll bet your friend will
be pleased, but you might have to explain the purpleheart..

My neighbor was awarded the Purple Heart in Korea. I made him a pen of Purple heart, but not nearly as nice as that one. That is a thing of beauty, nice job all. Thanks for showing.

You picked a great design for your gift to your friend. I'm sure he will be proud to carry and use this pen. Nice job on the blank Neal!

Nice thing to do Gary, Neil is amazing, I'm still waiting for his tutorial :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
I'm glad there are guys around that do value what others have given, I think it's about time for another pen drive isn't it? I know this crusty old crotchety Leather Neck that knows how to get the pens to the troops.
