I'm so excited, my friend Dave from Sawdust Explosion sold his first item on Etsy this week! Dave makes beautiful pen and pencil sets (as well as MANY other awesome wood working items)! Each set is made completely by hand!

His Bamboo Set was the first to sell and the buyer asked if he does engraving. Lucky for him, he knows someone with a laser engraver...wink, wink :)

We ran a few test pieces and decided on the best format for the turned out great! I can't wait to hear how much the buyer loves the pen and pencil set! She bought them for a friend who writes music, so we know they'll get a lot of use :)

Dave and I plan to work together on a lot more projects. He just built an awesome CNC router from the ground up! Check out the video on his blog! I already have several items on order! And I hope he continues to sell more items on Etsy as well...I love engraving new things :)


  1. Those pens look great! I remember my first sale on Etsy fondly :)
    Wishing David much success with his shop!
    How nice you found someone to collaborate with. Looking forward to your creations!

  2. How exciting! Hope to see what else you two come up with in the future.

  3. There you go again -- drumming up more orders!! Fabulous opportunity for both of you! The pens look great!
    Good luck to David -- turned wood items are just so lovely. (checked out his shop and blog)

  4. What pretty pens. One of my favorite little indulgences is a pretty pen for my purse. Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are fantastic! What a great gift idea for anyone! Congrats to Dave on starting his business. He seems very talented.

  6. What wonderful collaboration! The pen and pencil engraving turned out so well. off to check out Dave's shop...

  7. I just returned from Dave's shop and found that I had already favorited it.
    I found this POST on another project you did together.

  8. A win-win partnership! Congrats to Dave on the first sale! I still remember the rush (and relief!) when I finally made my first sale.
    He is lucky to have you as a mentor.
