We've just posted our Handcrafted Wooden Pens on our website under our Products for Sale. With Christmas just around the corner, we have been getting 5-10 orders per day for pens. They are all handmade on a lathe by our woodworker, Bill. They make great, unique gifts for Christmas, birthdays, graduation and retirements.
Our pens are available in a wide variety of woods but they can also be custom made out of a piece of wood that is special to you. One of our clients was an avid pool player. His wife brought us one of his old pool cues and we made him a pen out of it. Many of the workers retiring from GM have received pens made from a piece of wood from their work benches. One thoughtful son brought us a piece of walnut from his parents' original dining room table they bought when they were first married. His dad had just died and his mom was moving to a small apartment. The old dining room table was falling apart and too large to fit in the small apartment. Before throwing out the table, the son took a small piece of wood and asked us to make a pen for his mom. I'm told tears filled her eyes when she recognized the wood the pen was made from.
These pens write beautifully too as it contains a Cross refill. I still have the pen Bill made me over 5 years ago. It stays with me in my wallet and gets used constantly. It's the original refill. Mine was made of purple heart and stained in a combination of burgundy and deep purple. (I was huge Donny Osmond fan growing up so my pen just HAD to be purple!!)
Go over your Christmas list and see if there's anyone you would like to give a special, unique gift of a handcrafted wooden pen to. Check out our products for sale or call me at 905-259-3344 for more information.
