About

Hi, I'm Richard. I retired from the USAF in 1991and made the "mistake" of telling my wife one day that I really loved using the wood lathe in shop class back in high school. She took my comments to heart and bought a lathe for me for Christmas and as the saying goes "The rest is history"! Now I have been devoting most of spare my time to my 2nd love...turning beautiful handmade pens on the lathe ever since. I specialize in Bullet and classic Slimline style pens, but I can also custom make any style pen out of almost any type of wood, acrylic, corian (counter-top material), bone or antler you desire. Just drop me a conversation outlining what you'd like and we can go from there. The individual listings will state the particulars for that item. Pens are available with 24K gold, chrome silver, copper, gunmetal, antique brass, antique copper, antique gunmetal, satin gold, satin silver, red, blue or green hardware. Bullet pens are…

Hi, I'm Richard. I retired from the USAF in 1991and made the "mistake" of telling my wife one day that I really loved using the wood lathe in shop class back in high school. She took my comments to heart and bought a lathe for me for Christmas and as the saying goes "The rest is history"! Now I have been devoting most of spare my time to my 2nd love...turning beautiful handmade pens on the lathe ever since. I specialize in Bullet and classic Slimline style pens, but I can also custom make any style pen out of almost any type of wood, acrylic, corian (counter-top material), bone or antler you desire. Just drop me a conversation outlining what you'd like and we can go from there. The individual listings will state the particulars for that item. Pens are available with 24K gold, chrome silver, copper, gunmetal, antique brass, antique copper, antique gunmetal, satin gold, satin silver, red, blue or green hardware. Bullet pens are available in .270, .308, 30-06, 30-30, 30 caliber and 50 caliber sizes using brass or nickel casings. Now I can also add a stylus cap to your pen if you use a Smartphone, IPad, Kindle, Nook, or any other electronic device that you can use a stylus on!

The pens are sanded and polished using 150, 200, 340, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1500, 2000 grit sandpaper, then polished with 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, and 12000 grit micro-mesh pads. After sanding and polishing the pen, they are sealed to provide a durable, long-lasting mirror finish. Acrylic and Corian pens are polished using a countertop or granite polishing compound to make them absolutely shine!

I guarantee that your pen will be one-of-a-kind. Most of the pens have black ink and take a standard "Cross" refill available at any office supply or stationary store. I even include a free black ink refill. Any other pertinent details will be stated in the listing.

Thanks for looking at my listings and please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
