Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers

CBC Radio featured an interview with Jim Shaver who spearheads Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers. It's good that woodturning, and this project in particular, is getting some coverage from the mainstream media.

With help from some thirty ofr so supporters, Jim has sent out 232 pens to Canadian peacekeepers all around the world including Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Haiti, Sudan and Egypt. Some of the wood which has been used for this project was some walnut that was left over from a gunstock factory during the Second World War, a fitting use for this wood with a history.
