This is just perfect for me. I have RA and have to use a stylus and he made it not only perfect to use but beautiful so I can wear it around my neck. I will order more in different colors. What a joy to do business with this company.

GAllenK answered my email question promptly and was friendly. Product shipped very quickly, the item is in great shape and looks just like the photo. I think its really cool also, I bought it for my dad as a thank you gift and cant wait to give it to him!
A Man, his imagination, and a lathe
I love to create; to build.
Sometime ago my wife surprised me with a wood lathe for Christmas. Shortly thereafter I found myself unemployed and to keep me sane during the downtime I took metal to wood on my lathe, turning piece after piece. With no formal training I learned as I went, destroying as many projects as I completed.
Shortly thereafter, I turned my first pen. I've since lost count of how many I've turned. I find each one fascinating - always excited for what will be revealed in the wood or acrylic as I turn.
I enjoy wood turning, and after handing out many a bowl, pen, vase, etc. to a friend or family member was encouraged to make a go at selling my creations.
And, here I am on Etsy.
By day, I'm a cubicle jockey. At home, I enjoy taking odd pieces of wood or acrylic, spinning them at unnatural speeds, and taking a sharp piece of metal to them to form bowls, pens, keychains, platters, you name it. It's fun.
