Milk paint, chalk paint, furniture paint, mineral paint … it can get confusing. There are a large number of paints on the market these days for refinishing and updating furniture and interior projects, and there seem to be more every day. Let’s take a look at the different (and same) characteristics of each.
(November 2007) The Woodcraft Veterans Day Turn for TROOPS Turn-a-thon has produced results that none of us would have expected, with an amazing 10,519 pens being turned and shipped to the Middle East. What an outstanding response! We increased from 6,003 last year which is over a 75% jump!
(October 2008) For a fifth year, the Woodcraft stores from Boston to Honolulu are inviting the general public to participate in a pen turn-a-thon event during Veterans Day – Saturday, November 8, 2008 – to craft wooden, high quality pens for American servicemen and women actively deployed overseas as a reminder that people back home remember and appreciate their efforts, company officials announced.
(October 2009) For a sixth year, Woodcraft stores nationwide will conduct turn-a-thons making handmade pens during Veteran’s Day Weekend, Saturday November 7, 2009, with the goal of making and then sending thousands of handcrafted pens to American service personnel actively deployed overseas.

(October 2011) You can honor an American soldier by turning a wooden pen during the eighth annual Turn for Troops National Turn-a-thon at Woodcraft stores nationwide on Saturday, Nov. 12. Since the first national turn-a-thon in 2004, Woodcraft has sent a total of 75,000 (12,568 in 2010) one-a-kind wood pens to American service personnel actively deployed overseas and in rehabilitation facilities in the US. In addition to the annual turn-a-thon, some stores schedule multiple Turn for Troops events, and many Woodcraft customers and employees turn pens on their own.
