Such Is Life

Only had a little time in the shop before needing to run off to lunch so I figured that I would turn a quick pen out of mahogany. Unfortunately the wood chipped out at the last minute on the barrel on the left. Rather than trash the whole thing I decided to make one of the smallest styluses ever. With the added thickness in the middle it’s actually pretty comfortable despite the very short length.

This Weekend’s Stylus Work

In between all of the other shop activities, I turned out a few new stylus (styli?) this weekend. The walnut one was from leftover wood used for a concert poster frame. The cherry one was from an old cherry table that couldn’t be salvaged (how could I let that lumber go to waste). The maple one comes from the drawers sides / backs that I was working on this weekend. All proudly displayed on my Dodo Case of course…

Beginnings of an iPad Stylus

Before jumping into the drawers for the dresser, I decided to turn an iPad stylus. Not the most challenging project, but there is a lot to be said for a project that can be started and finished in the same day… Guess it’s time to stop procrastinating and tackle those drawers.
