I just love these snowmen. I got my first one a few years ago going to give to a grandchild. I kept it. Now I have my second, do I keep or give. They are just so cute and worth every penny. I keep mine out all year. You cant go wrong ordering these adorable snowmen. Just know if your thinking on giving as a gift, you might should get two.

My family had no idea of my decision for a new woodturning hobby.

I am one for doing research before making any decision...much research. I decided that I wanted to take up the woodturning hobby and set to work on gathering information. I bought the starting items required and turned my first pen.

When the pen was completed, I took it to my wife and said, "Here...I made you something." She did not believe me at first and asked me several times if I really made it. I asked her, "What do you think I've been doing downstairs for so long?" She had no idea that this had been on my mind for a while.

We have a daughter, Kaitlin, who has been helping me since I started this venture when she was about 4 years old. She is a GREAT "quality control manager" and will always tell me what is wrong (or not wrong) with the products I make. She knows so much about different types of wood, the names of the tools and where they are located, and even helps me turn a few items (with much supervision). This past year, she turned her own pencil and entered it into a local agricultural contest. She won 2nd place! You can see a photo of her and the pen she turned on the WoodturningBlog Facebook page.

Well, that is how the WoodturningBlog store got started. I made a pen and expanded my items from there. I enjoy what I do and I am always looking for new items to craft. Please like my store and tell your friends to check out the site.

Welcome and thanks for taking the time to stop by my Etsy shop. Please look around and tell me what you do (or don't) like about the items I create. If you have any questions, please contact me. You can see additional information and pictures on my blog at www.woodturningblog.com

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I would prefer to keep a customer rather than a sale. If you are not happy with your purchase, send it back within 30 days for a refund. If an item is damaged during shipping, send me a picture of the damage so that I may take that up with the Post Office.
I use Paypal for processing payments. If you would prefer a different form of payment, do not hesitate to contact me and I will see if I can make special arrangements.
I will ship within 2 days of receiving payment confirmation. I will use USPS First Class Mail in most cases. If you would prefer a different shipping method, please let me know and I will see what I can do on a case-by-case basis. I will combine items in a single shipment when possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Several of the items I create are what I would call 'functional art'. Please treat it accordingly. For example, please don't treat one of my handmade pens as you would a plastic el-cheapo pen from an office supply company. Leaving a wooden pen on your car dash on a hot summer day can have disastrous results!
