About: Brad Harding; Harding Pens and WoodturningsLocated in the town of Aurora, Ontario, Canada; Harding Pens was formed in January 2005 following some wood pens I made as gifts for Christmas 2004. The reactions I got from family and friends encouraged me to start selling woodturnings. I offered a few items up for sale and soon found they sell themselves. There is something about the beauty God put into wood that is so special. I work at exposing that inner beauty and then let the wood piece speak for itself. I love to show my turnings and to my amazement, people ask to buy them. I have sold about 400 custom wood pens, pencils and other woodturnings.
I am a professional engineer by trade, a woodturner by hobby and a evangelical Christian by faith. I am married with three teenage boys. I have been turning wood for about 20 years now. I took a long break when my kids were born. I got back into it seriously in 2004. Over the years I have built some furniture, created custom wood moldings for my old house, and toyed around with many types of woodwork. Something about the lathe has always fascinated me and I love the symmetric beauty of turned wood objects. Judging by my first ten years sales, others like these wooden objects too. I would like to thank all my family, friends and customers, who have supported me over the years. I thank God for the woodworking talents He gave me and the courage to start this business.
