About Us

Shay Pens and Fine Woodworking, LLC. is a small company located north of Pittsburgh in Kittanning, Pennsylvania.  I create custom handcrafted products and my wife helps with packaging. I have been doing wood working for over 25 years including building cabinets, tables, book shelves, entertainment centers, and other smaller wood working projects.

I hand-turn wooden fishing pole and reel handles, pens, ornaments, and other small products. I took the advice of many people and decided to start selling the handmade products that I have been turning on my lathe.

I enjoy making the one-of-a-kind pens and creating my own blanks.  When turning any of my products, including pens, I do not use any duplicators and the products are 100% unique in some way since I make them by look, feel, and touch. Each product is handmade and hand-turned on a lathe.  The products are made-to-order allowing the customer to get exactly what he or she wants.


Most of the time the turn-around time on a custom order is within 3 weeks and in-stock pens ship usually within 24 hours.


Each of the products I make will not leave the workshop unless I myself would give the item as a gift or personally use it. I take pride in every item I make and it is my personal objective to make each customer happy.

There is absolutely no risk when you buy a product from Shay Pens and Fine Woodworking, LLC. If you are not satisfied we will make the situation correct.
