About this project
This is a video showing the Antler Pen Turning process
White Tail Deer shed antlers every year therefore providing a renewable "Green" resource for penmaking and other creations.
Woodworking & Penmaking are my Passion. I've always dreamed of owning my own business but never had the financial means to do so. I've been making Pens & Pencils since 2008 as a hobby while I work full time. I currently utilize a 10 foot x 12 foot building to work from which also doubles as our storage building. My Goals are to fulfill All the Rewards First & hopefully have enough leftover to expand my shop and purchase the proper Professional Tools & bulk supplies required to produce Quality products efficiently & timely. This will also allow me to truly fulfill my passion & jumpstart my artistic design abilities. Most of my Pens have been made for family & friends as they request them & supplies to make them purchased 1 at a time. I also have a longer term Goal of expanding to become a Penmaking Supplier "One Stop Shop" as there a several suppliers with different products I order which delays when ordering supplies from multiple sources.
I placed my goal at $5K, and hope to do this project. Ultimately I would to like raise $20K which would pay for for the pledge rewards costs and leave me with enough to upgrade my 10' x 12' Shop and purchase some Quality Professional tools. As that goal gets closer, I can purchase the pen making materials in bulk and will pass that on to you in the form of free bonus rewards!

Risks and challenges
Other than possibly encountering supplier inventory delays, depending on the number of backers, shipping time may be delayed. I will work with each of you personally to fulfill my commitments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
No! Just double the pledge cost so you get two and pay the shipping only once. I'll ship them both in the same box so I charge you only once.
So for instance if you want 2 $40 Pledge Pens and live international you would simply pay $40+$40+20 for a total of $100
If however you want more than 4, you will need to add more shipping. Basically put, add $20 (shipping cost) for every four pens wanted.
I ship my pens in a box to protect them which also adds to the shipping cost.
Once Successfully funded, I will contact each Pledger for their Finish choice(s).
