Texas Woodturners Association is participating in the nationally sponsored
Freedom Pen Program, www.freedompens.org
to supply hand-turned ball point pens for all the military personnel serving in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
We will make all our pens from mesquite from Texas with the band in the middle
of the pen made from pieces of red, white and blue Corian glued together, cut
on a bias so the colored stripes are at a 45 degree angle. The wood,
Corian and pen kits will be provided through donations by club members, other
interested people and businesses. Members will turn the mesquite into
pens which will then be sent to the Freedom Pen Program for distribution the
personnel overseas. All members are encouraged to participate in the
project to support our military.
