I started making pens just over a month ago, now I can’t stop.
The $1000 I have made on them in the last month has not hurt :)
First pic is Jack Daniels oak, second a laser cut, third is maple, fourth is Olivewood, fifth is Mun Ebony
and the final one is a display for a craft show this weekend!

Thanks for looking

-- Matt

Hey Matt,
My wife says “as long as the money is deposited in the bank you are good”. I do not make pens but a friend does. Do you have any advice I can give?

Sounds like you’ve done really good. You’ve got some nice writing tools there.

Matt,

Just started the pen making myself (just waiting for the mechanisms to turn up) and yours are an inspiration and it’s giving me impetus to set up a display cabinet and make some money. From where are you buying your supplies?

Thanks for posting.

Eddie
