Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter page!  My name is Devin Cammack and I have always loved woodworking, and over the past few years I focused that interest into making beautiful custom pens.  This is something I love and want to share with everyone.

I have some new pen designs and woods that I would love to start producing, and with your help I can!  The wood for these pens I have specially chosen for their unique color, grain and attractiveness.  These are truly unique woods.  Burls are abnormal growths on trees that create beautiful grain patterns with lots of knotting.  Spalting occurs when a fungus grows on dead trees, and creates interesting patterns in the wood.

Each pen will come in a velvet sleeve to protect the pen.

Below are the awards with pictures of the various available woods.

Deer antler is a beautiful, while challenging material to work with.  The color can vary from white, to intense brown.  Also, the texture can vary depending on whether it is the harder, exterior portion, or the spongier interior (which is then coated with acrylic to provide a smooth feel.)  All deer antler is naturally shed.

Risks and challenges

I only see two risks associated with this project. The first is that the materials could go out of stock. I have mitigated this risk by using several suppliers through which I order my materials. Therefore the likelihood of not being able to find a specific material is slim. The second risk is that the delivery date could be delayed if I receive more orders than I anticipate. Although I am confident that I can meet our delivery goal unless I receive a very large number of backers.
