About Appalachian Pen Works

When I was around 17, I saw some pen kits advertised in the Grizzly machinery catalog. I thought it looked like a unique and interesting project. I purchased several kits, and my love for the craft was inspired. Over the years, I have had numerous hobbies, but the love of woodturning has never expired. In 2013 when I married my wonderful wife, I sold my equipment to my younger brother, thinking that I would no longer have the time to pursue my hobby.

However, after several years and having a job that gave me a fair amount of free time in the winter, I repurchased my equipment back from my brother in the Fall of 2019. Since then, I have been actively pursuing my hobby. In the Spring of 2021, Appalachian Pen Works was formed to showcase my artwork and make it more accessible to my customer base.

I enjoy designing and crafting unique one-of-a-kind projects from my imagination and working with individuals to make their dream pen become a reality. I look forward to seeing what my next project will be, and thank you for stopping by my little corner!
