May is a month of celebrations that honor the people who protect us in a variety of circumstances: Emergency Medical Technicians, Firefighters, Police Officers and Military Personnel. To say “thank you” to these men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect us, why not make a memorable gift in the form of a special handmade writing instrument?
We use pens every day and generally take them for granted. After all, pens have been around for centuries. Early pens were feathers dipped into bottles of ink. (Pen comes from the Latin ‘penna’ for feather.) Quills were elegant when used at a desk, but pretty messy to carry around in your pocket.
Woodcraft Product Development Mgr. Ben Bice demonstrates the A-Z knowledge on how to turn an acrylic pen.
Woodcraft’s Inferno acrylic and Tru-Stone turned pens are hot off the lathe and are shown below with the Wall Street II Pen Kits. Pen kits and pen blanks are offered in hundreds of choices and styles. In addition to the acrylic pen blanks, we also offer pen blanks in domestic wood, exotic wood, metal, poly resin, inlay, coffee bean, circuit board, deer antler, and many other unique blank choices.
