I make a wide range of pens and pencils to suit a variety of budgets and tastes. My pens are handmade. turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of friction polish which brings out the natural beauty of the wood.  It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying.  Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.


I use domestic and imported exotic wood.  No trees are harmed in any way to acquire the woods I use.  The imported and some of the domestic woods are from pruning of the tree, which makes the tree healther.  Other domestic wood I collect from storm downed trees and limbs.  More information on wood can be found on the Wood Species page.  I stock and can make pens out of many other woods and acrylics.  If you would like a pen, pencil or any other item custom handmade for you, please contact me.

I do not use duplicating equipment in any of my work. Each item is handmade one at a time. Therefore, even with like woods, with their unique and varying grain patterns, no two items will be identical.

I add product almost every day.  If you do not see what you are looking for, come back soon. I also take custom orders.  Please contact me if you want a pen or any other item custom made.
