All 37 Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores will host a pen turning benefit for Veterans on Nov. 10. Each participant will leave with a completed pen, and the entire $10 enrollment fee will be donated to the National Veterans Foundation.

"With Veterans Day fast approaching, we thought this would be a great way to honor our veterans while giving folks an opportunity to make something they can use every day," Scott Ekman, Rockler's vice president of marketing, said in a statement.

"This class is a great opportunity to learn basic skills, get some hands-on experience and meet other people interested in woodworking. Everyone leaves with a finished pen, and all of the proceeds will be donated to help our veterans."
