How It Started

When I was in eighth grade, I took a woodworking class at Shaker Road School in Concord New Hampshire, and I fell in love with woodworking. 

The following Christmas, I received a lathe and a wooden pen set.  I created my first wooden pen.  When Christmas vacation was over and school started back up again, I showed the pen to one of the students on my hockey team.  He asked me where I got it and I told him that I made it.  He did not believe me, and neither did anyone else at my high school.  That night I had my brother Matthew record a video of me making a pen.  The following day, I showed all of my friends the pen and the video.  Everyone wanted a pen.  This is how PW Industries started.  For the past three years my business has been all word of mouth.  As a result, I have made hundreds of pens, and I am very confident in my product.
