Distinctive Woodworking

The gallery of many current pens

My pen making images are always a challenge: I make so many lovely pens:   the images further down the page are older images in a variety of styles, many of which are not ideal.

I have some beautiful images up on instagram, and I will try to keep this page up to date more frequently. Here is an image gallery of some work made. I have many more, so please do get in touch if you’d like to know more

Apologies for the somewhat random nature of some of these photos: the challenge with balancing woodworking, a high tech job,  three children and such means that the joy of creating woodworking is often more important than maintaining the website.  The best way to discuss a particular creation, whether it be a pen or furniture is to get in touch. Tell me what styles you like and I can create something just for you.

I find that the most personal experience for  commissioning a pen or a suite of pens is done by appointment.  Pens are so personal, the matter of weight,  the mechanism, the balance, the particulars of the desired wood all combine to make for an excellent reason to get together to share the love of woodworking. Most importantly: if there is a desire for something absolutely bespoke,  we can work through my collection to match the perfect piece of wood to the desired pen mechanism.

If something catches your fancy, please get in touch!
