Announcement   Welcome to Tomcat's Creations and thank-you for visiting. Here you can check out all my handcrafted pens and pencils made from a variety of domestic and international woods as well as acrylics and alternative materials. I also have perfume pens, keychains and bottle stoppers with more unique items coming soon.
The process of creating these items involves a fair amount of time, specialized equipment and numerous steps. They include selecting the hardware kit and the "blank", cutting the blank to spec, drilling and gluing the blank, and endmilling. This is all before even getting to the lathe. Once on the lathe the shaping is done followed by finishing. The acrylics go through a 12 stage sanding process and 2 stages of polishing while the woods get 4 stages of sanding, 6-8 coats of finish and followed by 2 stages of polishing. They are then inspected under bright lights for defects, then assembled. All are refillable with replacements available from any office supply store.

All my items are one-of-a-kind as I use NO duplicators. Some may be similar in size and colour but due to grain patterns in wood, swirl patterns in acrylics, customer sizing requests and/or "how I feel that day", they are all unique.

These items would make great gifts for any and all special occassions. If you would like to suggest something different just let me know by convo and we will discuss it. In case you are wondering I am Canadian!! Eh!!

Thanks again for visiting and have a great day!

Very happy with my purchase, will make a great gift. I will warn you it took a bit longer to ship then I thought it would, ordered 6/19 and it just came today, so order early if it is for a gift giving occasion.
