|Woodcraft’s New Pen Designer Encourages CreativityBack to Press Releases
|PARKERSBURG, W. VA. (July 2011) — Woodcraft just unveiled its new Pen Designer, an online tool that allows woodturners to explore hundreds of pen and pencil options to create and preview their favorite custom designs—before they touch a lathe.
Pen turners will find over 39,000 combinations of pen blanks, styles and finishes at www.Woodcraft.com/DesignIt. The user-friendly site makes it easy to combine wood or manmade materials such as acrylic and Tru-Stone, with pen styles such as Wall Street and Premier Cigar in gold, chrome, and other finishes (depending on the selected style). Select a blank and click through the styles and options or choose a style/option and click through the blanks to discover your favorites. Viewers have the option to print their shopping list and then purchase their selections at their local Woodcraft store, by calling (800) 225-1153, or online at woodcraft.com.
Visitors to www.Woodcraft.com/DesignIt may watch a video of Scott Phillips, host of The American Woodshop on PBS, moving step by step through the user-friendly design process. If you have never turned a pen before, the site also includes an instructional video, or you can check out the pen turning classes at your local Woodcraft store.
“Our Pen Designer brings together at one location the many pen and pencil blank and kit selections available at Woodcraft, in order to allow turners to spend time ‘creating’ their design rather than searching for options. In a matter of minutes, you can easily click through lots of choices and see immediately how they look together,” product development manager Ben Bice said.
