tools and supplies we make
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:08:41 PM »
The thread about gifts for a pen person got me thinking about tools and supplies that we can make, either for gifts, our own use or to sell.  What have I left off the list?  (If there is already a thread about this, please let me know!)

ink:  walnut, iron gall, pomegranate skin. . .
pen holders:  turned or carved, decorated
inkwells
holder holders:  for the desk (wooden with holes to stick pens in), for traveling (roll up ones of cloth or leather)
blotters:  of leather (see Mike Ward's lovely work)
pen rests
sealing wax (have any you done this?)

And pen and ink holders. (Helping my son clean up his Legos a couple of nights ago led to a building session instead.)

Envelope liners! And cards, place cards and that sort of things. I mean blank ones, for writing on them, not already calligraphied! Well... also calligraphied  ;D ;D

By the way, Andrew you are a genious!  ;D
