When I started turning bowls I never thought that I’d enjoy turning pens. Boy was I wrong! My son has really taken to turning pens, he actually calls himself the “Pen Guy”. In fact we both have developed a special kind of love for turning pens.
In fact all of my kids love picking out various pen blanks when we go to Rockler, meaning I have quite the collection of mystery wood to choose from!
These custom made pens were made for Father's Day complete with wood burned initials. These pens were made using Mesquite and Red Mahogany woods.
This pen was made from deer antler! Seriously how cool would it be to have a pen made from deer antler? These pens are a great gift for the hunter in your life.
This custom fountain pen was made using Granadillo Wood. I love when customers come to me for specific wants and I'm able to make their idea come to life!
This pen was a fun one to create! My customers daughter wanted a pen but she wanted it to look like a pencil. I had to think about how to make this one work and I am very happy with the outcome, as is my customers daughter! <3
This custom fountain pen was made using Texas Mesquite Wood. This was for a repeat customer, she has several pieces made with Mesquite now.
This was the first acrylic pen made in the shop by my son. It came out beautifully and I couldn't be prouder.
This custom fountain pen was made using Zebra Wood. This was for a repeat customer, she loves all pens and now has a couple pens made by me.
This Ebony Pen was made for another repeat customer who has ordered several fountain pens. I absolutely love how this pen came out.
Another Ebony fountain pen, this one featuring a strip of tan wood. The glossy finish really makes this pen pop!
This pen was hard to give up! I am always amazed at the amazing grain that is Mesquite.
