Wood. A beautiful natural resource in an almost infinite variety of
colors and textures. For over 50 years I have been a hobbyist
woodworker and have always enjoyed making something from
nothing. By trade I'm an engineer in the high tech world (now retired)
and a (still active) theatrical technical director.
I had a wood pen that I liked very much, and I realized I could open a
small internet-based "store" and sell pens! I could make many of them,
using different styles and woods, and let my creative side reign. And so
I did. I will never get rich when measured in money, but the satisfaction
of turning out another new pen in another new wood is very
rewarding. I have forced myself to limit my pens to about 40 55+
styles, but that limit keeps getting moved up! The REAL pleasure is
when a new owner oohs and aahs over the look and feel of a fine
writing instrument that I created. Their smile is my paycheck. My
clients are discerning individuals that appreciate art and function. If
you like fine things, enjoy holding a nice pen, or just having a beautiful
desk ornament I am here to help you.
A fine pen is jewelry for your words.......
