A little about me
My name is Robert Wright. I worked in the construction industry for over 20 years. In that time I helped build or remodel many homes. I was always blown away at the end of projects by what I had accomplished. That was my favorite part of the job. To see what I had built with my hands. The past few years I have been working behind a desk, and have missed that feeling of accomplishment. This project will bring that back for me. With the success of this project. I will be able to buy more tools and supplies, so that I can create more projects to share.
I am a huge supporter of Kickstarter, and have backed over 150 projects. My project is exactly what Kickstarter is about. Just the little guy trying to live the dream. Thanks for stopping by my project, and thank you in advance for your support.
A little about the project
Jack Daniel's, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, and Makers Mark are known worldwide for their whiskeys. Anyone who watches the Discovery channel has most likely seen documentaries about how they produce their spirits. After the whiskey is distilled, it is then aged in charred oak barrels. The barrels are only used once. Some of those barrels are then broken down, and then cut into pieces suited for turning pens. That's where I come in. I hand make each pen in my shop. I do not use duplicators, or templates. That makes each one of these pens unique.
When I first envisioned this project my thoughts where to offer three or four options. Then I opened the suppliers catalog. It was ooh! I like that one, and this one, and also that one, and a few more. Now twenty-three choices later, here we are.
I will be adding more detailed pictures of each one in updates through out the project. I have a lot of options, and if you are interested in more than one. There are instructions towards the bottom of this page on how to add more pens to your pledge.
Add on list
If you would like to add another pen to your pledge, it is very simple. Once you have selected the reward you like. Click the blue button that says Manage. It's at the top of the page on the right hand side. Select the appropriate amount from the list below, and add it to your pledge.

Risks and challenges
I don't expect any issues or delays with this project, but there are always things out of my control. My suppliers could have some items low, or out of stock. My machinery and tools could break, needing repaired or replaced. This project could go bigger than expected. In any case, if there are any issues, it will be comunicated to my backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
