Ink Nouveau Intro, My Very First Video

This is the first Ink Nouveau episode ever, an insight into my daily life as the pen maker behind the Goulet Pen Company. Part 1 covers my views on passion through writing, and a tour of my 'warehouse' and shipping operation. Part 2 covers a tour of my workshop where I make each of my pens by hand. I have a host of different woods and resin materials that I use to make each pen. Rachel (my wife) thinks I have too much wood, more than I'll ever use in my lifetime, and she's absolutely right! My shop is messy, but I'm okay with that. I think it's been 'picture-worthy' clean once, when I had set up all my tools and before I made my first pen. Since then, it's always a mess, because it's a 'working' shop!
