Aussiepens “n” Things remains a family business owned by David and Christiane who have owned/operated online businesses for over 15 years.

We live in Tewantin on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

David has had an interest in woodturning for many years. His first lathe was purchased in the early 80’s a Durden L500, where his main interest was turning plates, bowls and a few spindle turning projects. In the late 90’s David attended a wood turner’s course that specialised in spindle turning, particularly the use of the skew chisel and since his retirements from fulltime employment (as an engineer) a few years ago has turned many interesting items. His passion for woodworking has come from both grandfathers and a father who started making pens in the 1980s, with one of the early Carbatec pen lathes.

David has been making and selling pens and other wooden items since leaving full-time employment on various websites and added Aussiepens “n” Things to what we do.David’s pens are made much in the same was as before and many of Graham’s pens are still available and new stock will be added.

The new pens are handcrafted in the workshop, by me, one at a time. The uniqueness of the raw materials is wonderful – natural wood and man-made acrylics and resins.

We aim to acquire our wood from sustainable sources.

We hope you appreciate our pens and other items at Aussiepens “n” Things as much as we enjoyed making them. Be sure to check out the “Pen Design Studio” and order the pen that really works for you or a special gift to a friend!
