Pens and lots of them!
|Acadia Desk Set made in Red with White Lines Acrylic|
Would it be bragging if I said that I get to make a lot of pens for people each year? A lot of people know that I am a self taught woodturner. What most people don’t know is that pens are how I taught myself to turn way back in the spring of 2000. As I said I make a lot of pens each year, a little over 500 custom pens each year. I make them from natural woods, dyed woods, colorful acrylics and even a few from deer antler (don’t worry the antlers used are what the deer shed each year). One way to get a pen that is always popular for graduates and retirees alike is as a desk set. Each desk set consists of a gold Acadia pen, pencil and letter opener in a nice Rosewood box with a tilting glass top. I usually make up about 30 desk sets each year and right now I’m in the middle of making 18 sets. Pictured above and below are just a couple of the acrylic desk sets that have recently gone out to new homes. Let me know what you think of them.
