Custom Shop

Absolutely unique.

A "one-off" as they say.  


Here at Chesapeake Pen, we specialize in creating completely customized and unique creations for pen enthusiasts or as breathtaking gifts.  You tell us what you want and then we create it! 

The possibilities are nearly limitless.  Natural wood, beautiful and warm, makes a stunning pen.  But what if that gorgeous Douglas Fir came from a century-old barn on the family homestead in Maine?  What if that piece of  Red Cedar came from a mountain peak so special that holding a pen made from it brings back a flood of memories that fill one with joy? Maybe woods of historical significance speak to you. A tropical hardwood from Ernest Hemingway's house in Key West, Florida or perhaps a pen made from Gray Birch planted at Stone House in Vermont, by the world-famous poet Robert Frost himself make for incredibly unique and special objects.



In addition to wood, we also make custom resin pens.  These resins are incredibly strong and polish beautifully.  The most amazing quality of these pens is the color combinations and patterns that can be created. These pens evoke a sunset on the beach or sailing trip through the Caribbean.  Even S'mores by a bonfire!

Finally, we can combine the best of both styles of wood and resin in a hybrid pen that is both beautiful and one-of-a-kind.  Using both highly figured wood like maple and amboyna burl combined with a complementary colored resin yields a stunning pen!
