First let me say the owners of Board Artistry are such personable individuals. I explained what I was looking for and they helped me in getting what I wanted. I absolutely love my pen. The wood is outstanding, the weight of the pen feels just right in my hand and it makes such a statement. Beautiful work. I highly recommend Board Artistry. I have purchased four pens from Laurie and Joe and have not been disappointed! This is a vendor with integrity and they do stand behind their products. Mildred

These beautiful Big Ben Cigar Pens will be listed this week.
What doesn't sell at our show this weekend will be listed in the shop next week.
Just had to share this local commission. The rollerball pens pictured are turned wood from the USS Constitution and will be gifted to high ranking United States Naval Officers. We are beyond happy with how they turned out.

About

Exquisite Hand-turned Pens, Keychains and More

Our items are beautiful and exquisite! Each and every pen, keychain, razor, etc... is handcrafted by Joe. Most items are natural wood where no wood dyes and/or stains are used so that the woods natural beauty shines through. The only exceptions are our items made with Spectraply. Spectraply is a dyed, laminated wood veneer product made for use in gun stocks, duck calls and pool cues.

Our pens truly are functional works of art that offer a unique writing experience!

Joe has always been great with tools and woodworking. It is his passion! In 2013 he bought a lathe. Eventually he'd like to get into making cups and bowls, but for now hand turning beautiful pens is his niche.

I just went back to work full-time in October 2015 after being off for a couple years to help nurture Kara and Madison through the early stages of their teen/pre-teen years. It is difficult to manage a commercial electric company that specializes in gas stations while juggling two active girls, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thank you for your time and considerations.

    Kara is our 15 year old daughter. She is our Pen Inspector when we can pry her away from her iPhone or iPad. LOL Her job is to inspect each and every pen to make sure they write and that there are no visible cracks or dings that Dad or Mom missed.

    Madison is our 13 year old daughter. She has an eye for all things beautiful! After Joe turns the wood, Madison carefully decides which wood to marry to which pen kits. Madison is also learning to turn and work with leather.
