Welcome to Timberbits Blog. I have set up this blog to share with people my passion on life, woodworking, and pen turning.

This blog is mainly concentrated on pen making, pen kits, woodturning, and woodworking in general. I am passionate about making not only fine writing instruments but also heirloom quality artefacts and furniture. As a craftsman, I am always disappointed whenever I see cheap poorly made items that come from dollar shops and their associated retailers. Feel free to add comments or questions about any of the posts on this blog. I welcome all of you to share your thoughts and suggestions.

Hopefully, you will find the articles informative and helpful!
