Rattlesnake Pen


Handmade pens make great Graduation Gifts, Wedding Gifts, or are great gifts for any occasion, or as a treat for yourself. My handmade pens are unique expressions of your esteem. While office supply stores sell pens, your selection is  limited to mass-produced pens with no personality. If they offer a wood it is probably some sort of rosewood made in China. Specialty pen shops sell fine pens, but they make you pay an incredible price for a mass produced pen! With One Wood Turn you can choose from a number of different woods, antlers and other materials to create a pen that is a pleasure to write with.Our prices are very affordable. Since every pen is made by hand, no two are alike.  Check the pen gallery of unique writing instruments in a variety of materials. If you don't see what you are looking for ask for it. The online listing is only a small sampling of my wood art. If a pen isn't what you are looking for, check out my other items.

One Wood Turn presents the work of artist Dennis Ewing. In my San Antonio, Texas studio I work in a variety of media to create pens, pencils and other objects from the lathe. All objects are one of a kind; no automation is used in the creation of my art. As no two pieces of wood, antler or other media I use are alike, you can be assured that you will be getting a unique writing instrument or decorative object. I love to talk fountain pens. If you love fountain pens I am the fellow you want to see.

Black Trim Segmented Pen

When you are looking at a picture of an item, it is the actual item you will receive.  If you don't see what you are looking for ask for it. I will obtain the wood you desire and make your pen using the style you desire. I can do multiple versions of our pens for company gifts or to simplify your shopping list. Ask us about discount pricing on multiple items and laser engraving.

Nothing makes a finer anniversary gift than a custom pen and matching pencil. They are also a great groomsmen gift, or for that matter gifts for bridesmaids! Think of a fine writing instrument for your next gift giving occasion.

I also offer letter openers and magnifying glasses. I also offer small turnings such as pill holders and toothpick holders. I want you to have a gift that can be used for years. I am happy to consult with you to get that special gift for you loved one or your self. E-mail us an let me make gift giving easy.

I normally ship my pens by Priority Mail. Multiple purchases will combine for shipping.
