Hi my name is Rob Ashton I became a career fireman in 2009; prior to that I was a finish carpenter for twenty five years. I always enjoyed making things out of wood. I started making pens out of wood as a hobby about six years ago. I gave them out as gifts to family and friends. I put it aside to go to school to become a Paramedic when my schedule became hectic between school, work and family. Recently I found my box which contained some of my pens that I had previously made. I started to experiment with some designs and remembered the enjoyment I got from creating pens from wood. Well now i guess the natural progression from turning pens is to salt and pepper grinders then to bowls. Now i cant get enough, If im not at the fire house Im in the basement.
