NotYetMonday's Shop Announcement

Stopping By Woods and NotYetMonday are the brainchild (bain-children?) of Cristi and Ben Richards. From the time he was a small boy growing up in central Texas, Ben was fascinated by all forms of old pens and writing instruments. Spending much of his time hiking and camping in Texas, New Hampshire and Montana, he also fell in love with the woods and the quiet solitude they could provide. Cristi spent her childhood in Central Indiana before moving to Massachusetts. In both, Cristi felt the strong pull of the wide open spaces and quiet woodlands. After moving to Hawai’i we tried our hands at wood turning and the rest is history. Having long been inspired by the tranquility of the woods, we hope to bring a piece of this natural beauty to you in each of our pens. Our passion is transforming each unique piece of wood from a rough form into a magnificent work of art.

Our workshop is nestled in the back of Palolo Valley, under the shadow of the Ko’olau mountains where the lush vegetation, quiet solitude, and murmurings of the mountains lend an unconscious calm to our work. We hope that by making one of our pieces a part of each and everyday day, you will be able to realize some of that beauty and majesty wherever your find yourself. Enjoy.
