D2 Woodturning was fast with their shipment. They were able to group my things together to save me some shipping AND they even sent back the dollar they saved!

About

Quality Handmade Bowls, Vases, Pens make greats gifts

My father was a carpenter, but I had no interest in working with wood. As I was approaching retirement I came across a TV show on woodturning featuring Tim Yoder. A few shows later I said " I want to try that". I was hooked. I bought a lathe, joined a woodturning club and found a mentor. He got me started on the basics . From there I read books, watched videos and practiced ALOT. Taking a block of wood and turning it into a piece of art is so exciting. As time went on, I had less scrapped pieces and more finished pieces. The quality of my work vastly improved in the first two years of turning. The book shelves became overcrowded and it was evident that I couldn't give every piece to my wife. I, with the help of my wife, had our first booth at a few local craft shows. It is very rewarding to see complete strangers have such great appreciation for my work. Hearing from patrons that my work is beautiful and should really be in art fairs rather than craft shows encouraged me to explore that possibility. I have now been invited to participate in multiple art fairs in larger venues. Etsy provides a more consistent opportunity for people to view my art. People appreciate the fact that each piece is a unique, hand turned, one of a kind item.

How is your wood pen blanks dyed with color.

Very good question. This is not a dye that will come off with use. The wood is put into a system that draws a vacuum and pulls all the air out and replaces it with the colored liquid being used under pressure. Then as with all my pens, I use a 10 coats of a finish to make it very durable.
