Turn for Troops – 2017

Dave Drickhamer took the lead on this and mostly due to his efforts, the majority of the pens submitted for TFT in 2017 came directly from MAWT.

For 2018, MAWT’s goal is to turn and submit 1,000 pens through Woodcraft of Milwaukee. Dave passed out over 100 pen kits at the January meeting. We should be able to easily meet this goal.

MAWT has a limited number of pen blanks available – see Dave for those as well. Dave’s contact information can be found in the Members Only portion of this website.
