About Us

I have been an avid wood worker for over 30 years. I started turning wood in an 8th grade woodshop class and immediately fell in love with the process. My dad bought me my first lathe - a basic Craftsman lathe that I had for over 20 years. I have branched out into flat work creating furniture for our house and special items for our children and now grandchildren.

Even though I enjoy all areas of this wonderful craft, I have returned to my first love - turning individual items on a lathe. I have been a pen fanatic all my life - probably stems from that first leaky fountain pen we used in 2nd grade. In search of the perfect pen I have turned to the craft I love to create unique, individual writing instruments that are beautiful to look at, a joy to hold, and just beg you to sit down and write to someone special.
