PST Woodcraft by Design

UPDATE August 2017:

I am saddened to inform that Pete passed away suddenly a few months ago.  The wood working he did over the past couple of years made him happy and made us all proud.  We all miss him dearly and are heart-broken at the loss of such a big-hearted man.

Due to this unforeseen event, PST Woodcraft will no longer be able to take custom orders.  However, there still are plenty of already-made items in stock.  Feel free to send an inquiry through the Contact tab and I will let you know if it is still available.

After 20 years serving in the US Navy, ​Pete retired and his wife told him he needed to "get a hobby".  So he made a sign as a gift for his in-laws' cabin and it was such a hit he started making signs for other friends and family.  Then he started making furniture for around the house, and a craftsman was born.

After talking to another pen-turner, he bought a lathe and started turning custom pens.  It turned out to be so much fun, even his wife started to do it!


Each item Pete builds is custom made with the utmost care and attention to detail.  If his name is on it, it's going to be right. His expectations are so high, he is sure to meet yours!
