Freedom Pen Turn-a-thon
At all Woodcraft locations will host a turnathon Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th. Eric of the San Carlos store is hoping to turn in an excess of 100 pens in those 2 days to send to the troops in the Gulf region. Woodcraft, as a whole last year, turned over 9000 pens. Woodcraft will supply the pen kits, blanks and lathes for the turn-a-thon.
Jerry Robinson tore out an old bench that was in his home when he bought the house 18 years ago. It is 1½ inch thick by 9 inches wide Fir - two 8 footers and 1 six footer. It's flat, but not pretty-it has some parts that are painted but will probably clean up nicely. He also has some fir 4x4 and 2x4s in rough lengths. He is giving it away. Call him at 415-387-6913. His home and shop are at 28 Roselyn Terrace, SF
