Default Welcome Crafted Pen Blanks!

Please welcome Crafted Pen Blanks, AKA Donald Fontaine, AKA OldFox to our Vendor Forums. Donald previously maintained a Vendor Catalog, but as that forum is closing, we've moved him to the Vendor Forums area. Donald tells me that he'll be more active here and I'm looking forward to seeing more of his blanks. I've not yet personally turned any of his blanks, but they look really awesome. He sells through a Web Site.

Take it away, Donald!

Thanks for the post Jeff. Just learning about these folks now. I love the idea of buying round blanks: less waste, less roughing, and a better representation as to what the finished blank will look like. They are saved as one of my favorites. Thanks again!

I have bought from these guys before way back when I was first starting the hobby. The blanks are nice and shipping was fast.

Good to see Donald Fontaine mentioned here !!! . I can testify that the wood/resin blanks I have bought from him over the years are extremely attractive and well-crafted.

They are always a joy to admire, turn, and craft into stunning pens !!!

Welcome Donald !!!!

I've been thinking about buying some of his bullet pen kits and never got around to it. Maybe now is a good time!
