I am Jeff Short and have been a woodturner/ woodworker in Florida for many years now. I am completely self-taught and love the hobby a great deal. I started as many of you as just someone who loves collecting pens. I believe that anything you do should always start as a passion. That is really why I started making pens. I find it both challenging and rewarding to find just the right combination of materials to make a special pen. As I participate in arts and craft shows, I thoroughly enjoy trying to match the right pen with each person that is exploring around my booth. I want this site to be an extension of that experience and hope that you will come back often to see new items. If you would ever like to discuss a custom made object or see something on the site you would like to have made from another wood or material, please let me know. I enjoy collaborating with other pen collectors, woodturners or anyone with a great imagination. Remember, this is where the wood (and a whole lot more) turns!!
