    I am a new member of NW Woodturners. I'd like to contact anyone in the group who makes pens from native woods. I'm looking for someone able to make a small edition of aromatherapy necklaces on commission, using the kit from Penn State, which is very much like turning a pen ( I have a small online business ( which sells essential oils, among other handmade products, and am interested to add this type of  aromatherapy diffuser to our line. (Personally I've never gotten into making pens.) If anyone is interested in discussing this further, please give me a ring.

    In case you have forgotten how, two sets of instructions are posted in the Members Only/Event and Class Document section of the website.
