About ten years ago, I saw an episode of How it's Made that changed my life. It was focused on hand-made wood pens. About a week later, I was visiting a friend, when I noticed a catalog on his coffee table that was dedicated to pen making. I borrowed a lathe, and that was the birth of Shawsheen Woodworks.
This is a passion as well as a career for me. It is my "zen" time, a way for me to become at ease with the world. I hope to produce pieces that continue to bring that sense of peace to those who live with them.
