Handcrafted personalized wood pens

Van's Wood Turned Instruments sells beautifully crafted, wood-turned writing instruments. We start with a piece of wood, turn it on a lathe, finish it, and assemble it within a few hours. Each pen or pencil has a unique quality about it. Because they are hand turned, the shape may vary. We also use various types of woods and have started laminating woods to make the pens very unique.

Handcrafted pens make wonderful gifts for fathers, teachers, new graduates, and more. The pens are customizable and come in a variety of shapes, styles, and woods. Add a pen case to your purchase for extra elegance.

We are excited that you have chosen our web site to view our pens. This started as a hobby two years ago, but with positive responses from friends and customers, we are offering these fine wood turned writing instruments to you.

Return Policy

These are hand crafted pens. The wood may have some minor flaws such as knots that do not show up until we have turned them. We guarantee they will write and function properly. If they do not, we will exchange them. You pay the return shipping. Please state what was wrong with the instrument. We will pay for the replacement pen or pencil shipping charges.

Backorder Policy

If we do not have a particular wood in stock, with your approval, we may substitute a similar wood. If we have to special order the wood blanks, we will notify you when you have place the order.

Shipping Policies

The pens and pencils will be sent in a bubble wrapped envelope within the continental USA via parcel post. We are charging for this. We can ship by other methods if you want to absorb the additional cost.

Damaged Goods Policy

If the shipper damages the goods, you will have to do the claim. We inspect and package them before shipping.
