It is time to kick things off. I’ve been messing around as a hobby turning pens and other things and several people have wondered if and when I would put something up for sale. Well, that time is now.
So what are you doing?
This all started out as a hobby to help keep my sanity during the pandemic. Wood turning has always been something that was interesting to me and half way through the pandemic I was lucky to purchase a full setup of a mini lathe and Mother Nature and her Derecho supplied me with ample maple and walnut to play with. Thus, the hobby was born. Now I have more pens than I know what to do with so time to put some of them up for sale.
What’s with the name?
Naming things is hard, plain and simple. I didn’t want to get pigeon holed into one product so I wanted to keep pens out of the name. In the future there will be other things. What those are, no idea. But I like to experiment and what better place than in a lab. Thus, the Midwest Wood Lab was born. Plus, the name was available on Instagram which was important.
Where can I buy this sweet merch?
I’ve had a few orders already from some select people and I’m just a 1 person shop here with a little bit of life going on at home. I haven’t had a lot of time to build up massive inventory so if you see something that you like but its out, try the pre-order page and you can place an order for any style that is on there. As always, I’ll take custom orders for people that want something different.
I’ll fully admit, I need to work on some of my product shots. But these helped get them out the door.
