Announcement    Hi: update January 30, 2022:
i'm running a little behind: battling a very very bad case of tendonitis but working to get caught back up. Thank you.

While the majority of my listings are current: I do have a couple of gaps. I also have a number of new items that I've not had time to get up onto etsy with great photos: So if you like what you see of my products ,please fire me a message: i'd be happy to discuss making something perfect for you.


I am running my ETSY shop a little different than typical for some of my work: for some of my listings, I provide the purchaser with the option of the specific pen mechanism to go with the beautiful woodworked body.

This, in my opinion, provides for the best experience for the dedicated pen purchaser. As an example, I got this delightful private message from one of my customers. She made my day!

I could not have been more happy with my jig saw rollerball pen.
The pic does not do it justice. I am a pen snob and I have to say this is best
one I have ever purchased. Seller worked with me to get it exactly right for me .
Highly recommend and I will be back to purchase.


If you’re interested in working with me for a bespoke pen, or to purchase one of my current items, please do get in touch.

About PensByJonathan

On Etsy since 2016

Woodworker. Software Test Engineer. Father of three. Woodworking instructor. How to make it all fit in a day :) Follow my store as I add more items

I’m a middle-aged “high tech” test engineer who regularly needs a break from the joys of ‘battling’ the computer systems I test.

I've been wood turning for over 20 years, and focussed on pens around 15 years ago. With a family of 3, now teenagers, there aren't enough hours in the day for huge projects that took days and weeks to create. What I love about pens is that in a few hours I can progress from “idea” to “stunning”

As the kids have gotten older, they’ve now joined me in my workshop. My autistic son helps me to prepare the pieces of wood, my daughters accuse me of having horrible taste in colours :) The girls help make the final decision on what pieces of wood go with which pen mechanisms, looking for the right balance of colour, texture, balance, weight, and look.

I also do custom furniture, but that is by one on one discussion. I don't think ETSY is a great place for a 9 piece dining room set!

I dedicate a lot of my ‘free’ time to woodworking teaching. Here in Ottawa Ontario, we’re lucky enough to have the head office of Lee Valley Tools. I’ve developed the skills at woodworking teaching that I now teach a portfolio of 32 different classes at almost a dozen different stores within the Lee Valley chain.

So, when you make a purchase from my store you’re supporting someone who is giving back (by teaching), by preparing the next generation of creatives (my kids), and you’re giving me plenty of reasons to stay away from my computer after the work-day is done. (thanks!)

    I've been a woodworker for over 30 years, making and selling furniture and wood turnings for about 20 years. I'm new to ETSY, but have been selling online in my home down via fine local business called Givopoly. I hope you enjoy my work.
