How I Got Started
I started turning wood quite a number of years ago and only in the last 7 years or so decided this is what I want to do when I retire. I'm just doing small pieces now, but have been known to dabble with new techniques and materials. One thing led to another, the family ended up relocated to Canada for work, and I started my passion again. My pens have been sold around the world to many satisfied and repeat customers. Most of my business is through custom requests and I always make extra and sell them on Etsy and through this website. I do not list everything I have on Etsy, so please feel free to look through my complete collection here. With over 100 different types of acrylics, 100 different species of wood and about 2 dozen types of Tru-Stone, as well as antler, I can make anything you like. If you see a style and a finish you like, just send me a note and I'll promptly send you a quote and shipping time. If you would like a turned item with your favorite wood, acrylic, antler, etc., I can accommodate your request. I come out with new items all the time - recently my Alligator Jaw Bone pens have started selling and I am going to introduce small pill boxes, nut crackers and ice cream scoop handles and more in the near future.
I list quite a number of products I produce and will also list gift and presentation boxes. If you would like a box, drop me a note and I can send you a revised shipping charge including the pen box. Generally, unless otherwise noted in the listing, pens are shipped in a plastic pen pouch in a bubble envelope to save you on shipping costs. Gift sets are packed in boxes and securely shipped. Shipping from Canada is weight and dimension based, so I have limited flexibility in those charges. If actual shipping charges are less than stated, a refund will be issued promptly for the excess shipping.
