How in the world did I end up here?

As a designer by education, an art aficionado by nature and a mechanically inclined handyman in general, woodworking has always been one of my favorite past-times. I love to make things. On one of my regular visits to the local woodworking shop where I longingly daydream about tools I can't afford, I started talking to the sales person about lathes and woodturning. I had always found woodturning interesting, but never saw a practical application. I was having this discussion with the sales person when he mentioned penmaking. As soon as he said that, I was hooked. There was something about the idea of making something that freinds and family could use and enjoy daily that I found very appealing.

Since that time, turning become more of a creative outlet than I would have ever imagined. Just within the realm of penmaking, the possibilities seem endless. The satisfaction of creating timeless writing insturments and sharing them with others is extremley fulfilling.

Thank you for browsing trough my offerings. I hope that you find them as captivating as I do and that any purchase you make becomes a treasured possesion.

Most Sincerely,
Warren Gibson
