Our Promise

Cathy and Her Dad will skillfully and lovingly craft an ordinary piece of wood or other material into a unique and beautiful writing instrument.  If you have a "special" wood, we can create a lasting memory for you.  Whatever the sentiment of your wood, we can craft it into something that you will cherish for a lifetime.

How It All Started

 Cathy and Her Dad was founded in 2005 as a hobby and as a means to ensure that my Dad remained active after retirement.  We built a workshop on his property, enrolled in classes, mastered our craft, and then began selling our creations at Craft Fairs and Festivals.
