The Pen Shed

My name is Peter van Rensburg and I was born in Kroonstad, South Africa . I was a Project Manager for a mining company for 40 years working and travelling all over Africa.
Forty five years ago I met an married an English girl and after my retirement 6 years ago I found myself living in the UK.
Since my retirement I found myself with spare time on my hands, so I bought a shed and wood turning equipment to keep me busy. I started by making a few pens but this soon developed into a passion for making bespoke pens.
I have used South African Wild Olive wood for some pens because of its fantastic grain but I have also used different woods and acrylics for others.

You can see more of my pens on The Pen Shed website and on my Facebook Page. I look forward to meeting everyone at the Celebrate Southern African in June.
