THE EAGLE PEN –
This beautiful Wall Street II pen, is quite unique and one that grabs everyone’s attention! It was created using a process which incorporates a designed tube-in casting with crystal clear acrylic. Completely handcrafted and turned in the workshop at Lathe Life Creations.

THE PAINTBRUSH PEN

The inspiration for this pen was a photo of a paintbrush pen that a friend had seen online. I challenged myself to see if there was a way that I could recreate it or something similar. After some research I couldn’t find any kits or anything like the pen so I sketched a draft and decided to give it a try! Above are photos of my finished product. I turned a walnut wood pen blank, painted the bottom section with enamel paints and completed the pen with a green slimline pen kit. I’m pretty pleased with it, and am looking forward to completing the next one with changes needed to improve the design.

The Nautical Hart is a handcrafted pen made of composite wood, with navy blue and gray stripes. Gayle Akerman is the artist who created this very stylish pen. This Hart Double Twist pen is very pleasing, and it’s nautical theme reminds one of the deep sea. It is a perfect “in between” size, smaller than the classic cigar-style pens, but larger and easier to grip than the slim-style pens. Chrome and black trim enhance the beauty of this unique wood, adding to it’s style and comfortable elegance.
The Knotted Navigator is a handcrafted pen made of Pink Ivory Wood, a very rare and exotic wood. This beautiful and unique navigator pen is sure to please both the eyes and the hand. The Gold and Black trim enhances the beauty of the wood, featuring the grain patterns and the red tones with deep red undertones. The knot was found deep in the wood, only adding to it’s uniqueness ! This one is a favorite of many.
This Wall Street II was custom made using Pink Ivory Wood, a very rare and exotic wood for a very special friend. “Pink Ivory remains one of the most elusive, coveted and highly desirable of all the world’s many exotic woods. Despite being indigenous to Southern Africa, the wood is rare throughout its home continent. What isn’t exported abroad is said to be hoarded by rich, hierarchical families throughout Africa, as the wood is considered to be on the same level of value as diamonds and emeralds. Its reputation in the US is that of being one of the most elusive, difficult-to-source of all exotic woods, and one of the “holy grail” exotic tonewoods in the eyes of many guitar builders.” ~ according to rarewoodsusa.com

Etsy Store – Lathe Life Creation

Our Etsy Shop is up and running. We’ve had it since about December 2019. It’s been a fun way to market all of the pens we are handcrafting. One of the most difficult things for me to do is to part with the created pens. I fall in love with each one of the ones I make. But I’m getting better, because really, how many pens should one person have??

So visit our shop, Lathe Life Creations, on ETSY by going to www.etsy.com/shop/lathelifecreations We recently added a ton of pens because a supplier here hasn’t been able to open back up to the capacity and ability as she was , due to COVID-19, so until that day comes around, we will add those pens to our shop. Some of them are very unique and created for the clientele that they were intended. I hope you find on that you may like. We try to stock every week or two, so be sure to keep checking back. Oh and we can do our best to help you with a custom order. Those are fun, and somewhat challenging, but so far any one who requested a custom pen has been fully satisfied.
