Alright guys, the deal is my dad isn’t being cut a break for taxs because he’s officially a doctor now. you may be thinking “oh, doctor, big bucks, but he lives on a farm, is paying off his college loans for vet school as well as his college loans for doctoring school and is soon going to help me pay for my college (which is fucking expensive.) now, I’m not asking you donate money, oh no, not at all.
What I’m saying is my papa makes turned pens, as in he has a lathe and uses pen kits to make pens. He uses wood, acrylic, and metal blanks. His pen kits are bought from a local wood shop on my road. Wood blanks are usually the least expensive, acrylics are a little difficult to work with but it can be done, and metal blanks are very expensive. My dad can also make things like perfume bottles, but I’m not sure if he really wants to or not.
I will hopefully have a bunch of examples up soon of his work. I’m hoping he will bring up a few of each kind of pen, though he hasn’t worked much with acrylic lately. My dad has already told me he is up for custom commissions, even on the metal blanks. Once he is up, I can let you all know about prices, quality, and the pen kits we are willing to use as well as links to those kits if we are able.
Hopefully I can open an etsy for him soon.
