My name is Alex and I am 12 years old. I make custom pens to raise money for college. I made this video showing the steps to make a celtic knot pen from a log at a sawmill to the finished pen.

Tried watching it on the site after logging in ... Not available in my country... then went to YouTube and tried there ... still in the wrong country... Is Washington State no longer in the same country?

What "Country" is it available in  the Ukraine?  I guess in 2014 the USA is no longer a valid country.  Welcome to the future.

Can't view it. Says the video is not available in my country. Guess Oklahoma doesn't count.

Alex... get a featherboard, your too young to go without fingers!

Congrats on the business, go to school for business, it looks like your gonna need it...I bet youll have a great shop when you get older and you'll do good...because I said so. lol And keep your head straight, stay focused but also, go have some fun. Make loads of friends and keep doing your wood working. Do you turn anything else? bowls? vases? Good luck in your future, I wish you all the best in the world!

alex just saw your video. it's good to see a young man willing to do good work so he will be a productive member of the US. Keep going you will be a millionaire one day! I would like to get more information of how to buy one of your pens. do you have a catalog yet?

Like all the others who have commented, Alex is talented and creative. His pens are beautiful, and can inspired other creative people to do that which they thought might be impossible. Yes, it is obvious that his family does not lack money--parents are probably both professionals. However, this does not take about from this young man's drive; for so many young people today take things for granted and do not value money. Obviously his family has taught him the value of working! I am an avid fountain pen collector (retired), and would love to purchase one of his pens, not because he needs the money, but to support any young person with such dedication.
