Web entrepreneur and artisan Grosvenor Van Dusen is pleased to debut his blog WoodTurnedPensBlog.com. The interactive platform serves as an informative complement to the main site, http://www.WoodTurnedPens.com, where customers can purchase customized wood pens, pencils, key rings and more.
“I saw the beauty of wood in my 20 years working in various lumber yards,” said Van Dusen. “I do not stain the pens; you get a natural finish pen when you order one from me.”
A well crafted, elegant pen is a highly valued item, even in this digital age. Seven exquisite styles of affordable, hand turned, non-mass produced pens are offered through WoodTurnedPens.com. The popular Slimline pen features a narrow shaft, a twist mechanism, and accepts Cross brand refills. Select matching 7 mm Slimline click pencils to form a set – an excellent gift choice for graduations, job promotions, “employee of the month,” and other special occasions. European pens are slightly thicker than Slimline pens, but feature the same twisting component. For a wider, robust writing tool choose a Rollerball pen, which has the style of a modern day fountain pen combined with the ease of use of a ball point pen. The rich black ink permeates paper which makes it an ideal pen for signing contracts and checks. Cigar pens and Sierra pens are similarly hefty. Teacher pens make fantastic holiday or beginning of the year gifts for educators. These pens are constructed from three types of wood, but more importantly, one end has red ink and the other has black ink, making it easy for a teacher to correct essays or write a note home. Likewise, Two Way pens feature two colors of ink; simply twist one way for black ink and the other way for red. Each pen is shipped in a case. Key rings, personalized purse hangers, bottle stoppers, and magnets make for wonderful party favors and gifts.
All of the items featured on the site can be tailored to a customer’s specifications. Shoppers can choose from over 20 types of wood ranging from domestic woods like aromatic cedar, alder, and mesquite, to exotic woods like olivewood, ebony, and Mopani. The exterior hardware of each pen is made from 24 karat gold for long lasting beauty. In addition to selecting materials, customers can select the shape and size of each pen or pencil. A person with arthritis, for instance, may request a wider pen or an extra bulb to make gripping a pen easier.
“I’m a one-man operation,” said Van Dusen. “I hand turn each piece as I get an order. Each piece is unique and personalized.”
Customer service is of the utmost importance at WoodTurnedPens.com. Each pen and pencil is hand turned on a lathe to the exact specifications of the customer. Due to the personalized nature of each piece, at the present, customers are limited to ten items per order. Completed orders are promptly shipped via parcel post throughout the continental U.S. Feedback is always welcome; in fact, Van Dusen prides himself on being able to personally answer all customer queries in a timely manner.
