About Pappy’s Woodwork
Hand crafted Pens and wood-crafted items from Georgia.
Pappy’s Woodwork is owned and operated by John Talipsky
My shop is located at 740 Madison Chase Drive in Lawrenceville, Georgia 30045
I personally turn and create each crafted item individually in a variety of designs and wood types, using various tools not the least of which is a lathe and a CNC Router.
I market most of my creations at ETSY.COM ( http://pappyswoodwork.etsy.com )
Please visit my store there at pappyswoodwork.etsy.com to view and hopefully purchase the following types of crafts.
Hand-turned ball-point mechanical pens and pencils
The wood and acrylic turned pens are turned and accented with Gold, Silver, Gun-Metal, Copper and other accents and accent finishes. Each item is polished to a satin or gloss finish, as described in each listing. The pens start as a 5/8″ X 5/8″ X 5″ block of wood, and are then hand turned on the lathe. After the initial tooled lathe turn, the piece is taken through 6-7 levels of sanding, and polishing, and finished in wax and acrylic polishes designed to last.
Hand-turned calligraphy Dip pens
The calligrapher can get hand turned pens in a variety of artistic design and grips to facilitate the calligraphers writing and drawing. Each item is polished to a satin or gloss finish, as described in each listing. The pens start as a 3/4″ X 3/4″ X 5 – 12 inch lenghth of wood, and are then hand turned on the lathe. After the initial tooled lathe turn and design, the piece is taken through 6-7 levels of sanding, and polishing, and finished in wax and acrylic polishes designed to last. The pen is finished with either a straight holder to hold the pen nib or an oblique flange which hold the nib.
I create the wood signs offered from layout ideas from customers and other sources, and program the designs into a computer controlled (CNC) router to turn out the unique crafted/carved design.
I hope you will consider purchasing these unique items. Each is one-of-a-kind since each is individually turned or carved, and no two pieces of wood are identical.
We will also offer hand-crafted home items such as bird houses, bird feeders, and lawn and garden accessories.
