Back to my story, I have enjoyed woodworking for many years, although I was not always the best at it. A few years ago I was injured in an accident at work and heavy lifting was out of the question. I hated having to give up my hobby completely so I searched for an answer.
A large problem with woodworking is dust collection. One day I was looking for some dust collection equipment hoping that I could soon get back into my workshop. This is when I stumbled onto an article about wood turning on a lathe and making small turnings such as Pens & Pencils,
Wooden Darts, etc.
I think it must have been fate because this was the perfect hobby for me. I could still be involved in woodworking and make beautiful items from exotic hardwoods without killing my back !
One thing led to another and soon I was making wooden pens and pencils and other gifts for everyone I knew. I fell in love with this hobby and try to tell everyone that will listen just how much fun and rewarding it can be.
But why would anyone want to buy a wooden pen when businesses are giving plastic pens away and every store sells them for less than a dollar?
Because everyone has cheap pens but now you can own a true work of art that will be cherished for years either by yourself or someone else if they are given as a gift.
Once you hold one of these pens you will understand. They are simply incredible, the feel and the balance of them in your hand and the beauty of the various
Exotic Woods will win you over!
The thing I like the most is that I can make them all day long and still every one is a little different, the grain on each tree changes a little as it goes. I can make two pens from the same exotic wood and they will all still look different!
Stick around and I'll show you how I make some of my favorite items like Wooden Darts and Kaleidoscopes! Just maybe you'll find a brand new hobby of making or collecting pens in the mean time.
