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.
