I've been married to my lovely wife, Maggie, since January, 1968. We have two sons, two Daughter-In_Laws, three beautiful granddaughters and one grandson, ages 15, 12, 10 & 4. My oldest son lives right across the street from me and my youngest is about 80 miles West. I've been interested in wood working since I was about 10 years old and made my first "skate scooter".
I started turning pens in 1998, as a hobby. I quickly ran out of people to give pens to - and it was getting expensive. If I wanted to keep making them, I had to figure out a way to sell some. Thus, Cajun Pen Shop was born. Internet Sales was a fairly new concept, so I dove in and sold a bunch of my hand turned pens. One thing led to another and next thing I know, I'm an authorized distributor for some of the largest pen manufacturers. The rest is history, my hobby grew into a full time business and I found that I no longer had time to turn my pens.
In addition to the Pen Business, I've been a Police Officer since 1968. I retired as a Lieutenant on April 20, 2010. I will hopefully spend the rest of my days in my shop making sawdust.
The Pen Shop has allowed me to put together quite a collection of woodworking tools, I actually have pretty much everything I think I will need - now I am starting on tools that I want :-)). I'll post some shop pictures soon.
My main interests are turning, box making, clock making - pretty much any small projects.

i have a Trend Air Shield, not the Pro model, that I have lost my charger. A new charger is about $60.00, which is crazy for what it is. The battery is 3.6 volts and can be removed from the shield. Does anyone have a suggestion? I have seen a ...
I was wondering if any of you Lumberjocks used the Suede Tex Blow on Flocking. I’ve used it in the past and had great results. My problem now is that I have a couple of different “Flock” colors, but the paint on adhesive that m...
This has been around for awhile, but I thought that some of you might not have seen it before. The downside is that this method of tree cutting doesn’t leave any wood for us to use. Enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/willyfoo/videos/vb.967...
