Lambeau Field Pen
Lambeau Field Pen
Keep a piece of history at your fingertips with this historic pen.
This pen was made from 1960's wooden bleacher boards from Lambeau in Green Bay Wisconsin. These wooden bleachers were used as seating during the Glory Years before the wood was replaced with aluminum. In the 1970's a fashion store called Arthur Norgarrds renovated a barn and used the stadium boards as flooring proudly displaying the seat numbers on the ceiling in the lower level of the main building. In 1986 the complex was sold and renovations were done for a Bed & Breakfast named Birch Creek Inn. A fire in 1999 caused by lightning destroyed the main buildings. Many of the stadium boards protected by plywood and thick shag carpet were saved, carefully removed and stored. The vintage stadium boards were first released to the general public in 2007, nearly 50 years after they were first used.
The top of this pen is a football made from polymer clay, has a real leather texture to it!
Antiqued silver metal accents.
This pen takes a standard rollerball refill.
Chad has been on the lathe for well over 20 years, first learning to turn in junior high school. In the last 10 years he has specialized in pen turning, resin work, and segmenting, leaving his corporate job in 2013 to sell his art full time, and in 2016 opening Turners Warehouse, a turning supply store in Gilbert, AZ.
Chad has been featured in Pen World magazine for his watch part pens, has had several local print and tv spots, sells his pens in a local artist collective, and for multiple years has participated in the largest art festival in the western united states.
Chad loves to teach about pen making and resin casting and loves to talk shop when he has the time, helping both new and experienced turners while continuing to grow his own skills. He has presented internationally for Record Power teaching about segmenting, and has done lots of local demos and classes. Chad also has a Youtube channel with over 27K subscribers where he posts instructional and maker videos, where he hopes to inspire others to create.
