Announcement   A lot of projects happen in my lair but there is one spot in my workshop, amidst the den of tools, that transports me to exotic locations all without the purchase of a plane ticket.

The place where I make these pencils and pens require me to turn exotic woods. I don't travel that often so I don't know too much of the actual exotic nature of where these woods come from but I can attest to it's otherworldly allure. For instance, Padouk (an orange, oily wood) smells of sweet coconut bread in it's dust form. Cocobolo (a dense, dark red wood) has an oil that smells like dark cherries. Long story short, this part of my workshop is my refuge and what you see in Hand Baked Pencils are the by-products of simply relaxing.

More importantly, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my wares. Let me know if there are any questions I can address!

About

The wolf and dead bread people

It was Christmas 2010 when I realized I didn't want to spend bazillions on Christmas presents. Instead, I decided to spend that money on a woodworking tool that would help me create gifts for my family. Since then, my mind's been tinkering with other woodworking projects but woodturning will always be close to my heart. In fact, I've dedicated a special section of my workshop just for making these pens and pencils.

As for the shop name, there was a day when I was super hungry and worked with some English Chestnut. I held the tool too close to the wood and it burned the wood just enough to blur the lines between the familiar smell of smoke and...freshly baked bread. It was in my state of confusion that I opted to believe in the latter and that I was not a man in my workshop but a werewolf with an appetite for the Pillsbury doughboy...and all of his kin.

When I woke up, I had breadcrumbs on my half naked body but I was sated. Where did I go to satisfy myself? Only my werewolf self knows.

I'm good with wood. Hopefully, the pieces you see can convince you of that.
