Title: Super fast

I ordered blanks on Friday 11/17/23 in the late afternoon. I was sent an email almost immediately to let me know that my order was shipping already. I received my order today(11/20/23) to south Florida. I have not tried to turn any of them yet but the colors are fantastic. I’m looking forward to how these turn out. Just based on the customer service alone I will definitely be ordering more.

Title: Great website

While I was here shopping, I thought I would memorialize my testimony about the service of this site. 13 years ago I first discovered Beartoothwoods, and placed my first order. I found the merchandise top quality, and the delivery, and communication from Ernie cannot be outdone. Amazingly, it still remains the same today. I mentioned communication. I like the notices we receive throughout our purchase process. I have ordered from other vendors, and actually been lied to. Never happens here. I also enjoy the news letters Ernie sends out. Keep up the good work Ernie! I'll be back.

I’m a pen turner who typically makes custom crochet hooks, due to covid there haven’t been ANY places selling them, I mean it literally no where, I found them here at Bear tooth and not only that they were cheaper then at other places! It came well packaged and overall didn’t have any issues! Plus it was shipped the same day! I will certainly be back :)

Title: Mr

I have just had delivery of my first order with Beartoothwoods and I have to say from my first point of contact with Ernie to my delivery today the experience has been awesome. On this order I just purchased 100+ blanks so as to qualify for the fantastic discount offered on larger purchases which makes them great value for money. The product itself is excellent, the blanks are beautifully cut and the depth of colour in them is wonderful. This may be my first visit to this store but it certainly won't be my last !!!

Title: The Matrix

Couple things 1st.. Ernie gives you his personal attention and cares about his customers. I happen to place an order about 2 hrs after I placed another. He caught it and combined the order to save me on shipping. Absolutely no other store has done that. Now I purchased the Ocean Matrix Acrylic pen blank... wow... turned like butter and finished with a crystal clear shine... loved this pen blank. I will definitely be doing more business. I highly recommend Beartooth.

Title: Best of the Best

Ernie is the best of the best. Best in customer service, selection, and everything else. I have been ordering form Ernie the past 4 years and nothing but exception service has been provided. For example, I just had a customer bring his pen back because it broke unexpectedly. With Ernie’s help I was able to fix the pen and have it back to the customer by the end of the week. I will be ordering from Ernie until I stop making pens (which hopefully never happens).

Title: Exactly what I need

I started a small business and was looking for a certain blank of a material I had never turned before. I was using a competitor as i didn't know about bear tooth woods. the competitor didn't have the particular blank I was looking for. I did a google search and found it here. When I looked I saw the prices were cheaper and he had a nice selection of the particular material. Thanks to Ernie My business is thriving and I'm only in my six month of operation. Im picky about what I turn but thanks to Bear Tooth Woods I'm killing my competition because I only spin the dopest blanks. Im so glad I found Bear Tooth Woods because without them I wouldn't be as successful due to the quality of their choices and great selection.

Yippee ! ... Got a MFRB box from Ernie & Robin yest.! So excited !! I have been buying from Bear Tooth Woods for 7 years. I am always impressed with their speed and efficiency in filling and shipping an order. I appreciate the variety and quality of their products, and the unmatched excellence of their Customer Service. Another really strong point is their promptness in answering emails. I find the BTW website extremely well-organized and pleasant to navigate. It is very user-friendly so it is easy to find the products I want and all the needed information about the products, as well as to scan for new products that I want to learn about and try. Many of their listings are illustrated with multiple photographs and supplied with details which I find very helpful. A sincere 5-star-plus rating to Robin & Ernie !!!

Title: Fast and Friendly!

Everything about my first order was a pleasant surprise: 1. I found exactly what I was looking for, and then realized that because I was ordering in bulk (as I usually do) the price was actually less than I was used to paying. 2. I ordered pretty late at night on a holiday and Ernie e-mailed me very shortly after to thank me for my order and let me know exactly when it would ship - something that he definitely didn't need to do, but it was much appreciated! 3. Shipping was INSANELY fast copared to everyone else I order from, and the price for shipping was also really low! 4. The package arrived and it was full of thanks yous, VERY high quality products, and some of the best instructions I've ever found with woodturning kits! I really wish I could order all of my woodworking supplies through you!! Thank you SO much!! Evan (I also made an awesome awl, just for fun, and because I never make things for myself :) )

Title: Praise for the third time

This is the third time I've felt obligated to give praise to Ernie and BTW. I made the kneejerk reaction to make pens for 3 of my coworkers as gifts just 11 days before Christmas. Having experienced very slow shipping from other vendors in the past - as much as a week after placing my order until it was shipped - but knowing Ernie fills and ships his orders right away, I felt safe placing a late order. I order my kits on Wednesday night and they just arrived with Saturday morning's mail. This gives me the weekend to turn the pens without being pinched for time in the last days before Christmas. I had no doubt Ernie would pull through for me. Great prices, excellent selection, and customer service second to none. Thanks Ernie and BTW, you're the best!

Ernie is simply awesome, everything he carries is just amazing. I don't believe he would carry it unless it met his and Robin's strict standards. These Drip Tip Cores are perfect, I have bought over 500 and not one of them had any defects. The tolerances are very strict and they fit like a glove in each and every tip I have turned. The prices are amazing and they are always on hand. Ernie keeps his stock updated better than any supplier I've ever used. If he doesn't have it, he does his best to get it. Friendly and amazing service and ALWAYS my first choice for everything.

Title: Great Blanks

Ernie; I want to let you know that today I turned for the first time one of your 1.5 x 1.5 x 6" blanks for an ice cream scoop. I'm not usually one to comment on a product, but I was so impressed with the way that your material turned. I have been using one of your competitor’s blanks and it is much harder to eliminate chipping and chatter with them. Your blanks turned with less required pressure, did not chip or chatter and the color went completely through evenly. You blank was easier to finish and I estimate time to complete was about 75% of what I have been using. I'll be using your products in the future. Jim

The order I placed today was shipped just a few hours after I placed it. Their prices are reasonable and when I've had a question they have answered in hours. I also like the personal touch of the handwritten notes on the invoices and the free blanks that have been included. In this day of massive corporations it is great to find a "Mom and Pop" operation that is able to compete in prices and selection, but still retain the personal touch. If you're looking for pen making supplies, look no further, Bear Tooth Woods is the place to shop.

Title: great service

I have been ordering pen supplies from a competitor for a long time and a friend of mine told me about Bear Tooth Woods my first order was placed on a Wednesday night and was in my mailbox Saturday. It came with a free pen blank with a nice note of thanks and a little notebook and a hand written thank you on the invoice. Very hard to find customer service like this anymore. I will be doing a lot of business in the future. Very Pleased.

Title: Won me over

Beartoothwoods is now my go to source for pen kits and supplies. They won me over with things like mix and match pricing, great deals and prompt service. However, the number one thing that makes me love this company is the way they treat me as a customer. I feel like I'm dealing with friends. If you are a pen turner check out BEARTOOTHWOODS - They will be your friends too.

I can not adequately describe how delighted I am each time I need to place an order with Ernie at Bear Tooth Woods! Every order is handled personally and you can tell (even from afar!) that it is handled with great care and an eye to detail. I primarily order pen kits and small tools/accessories and know I will continue to order from BTW over and over again. This is the first place I come to for old favorites and when I'm looking for something new.

If you are looking for the very best in pen components and personal service then Ernie at Bear Tooth Woods is your man. It makes no difference if your order is small or large, you receive the same excellent customer service that, in my humble opinion, is the best in the business. Ordering is quick and easy, discounts for quantity ordering are applied automatically and his website is designed so its easy to understand and navigate. Shipping is really, I mean really fast! It never takes more than a couple of days for my order to arrive in my woodshop, in perfect condition I might add. I know it's a business, but Ernie makes you feel that you've got a friend at Bear Tooth Woods. As long as I run a woodshop, Bear Tooth Woods is my sole supplier of quality pen components. You will not be disappointed!

Title: Your new buffing compounds

Ernie I just tried the 2 new buffing compounds that you have. I have been using the small buffing system that one of the larger vendor sells for about 4 years now. It is small with 2 buffing pads on the motor. I have been using 3 different compounds, swapping one of the pads for the last step. I use the tripoli, the white diamond (these came with the system) and a blue compound that is finer than the white diamond. Once I figured out the technique of buffing I have been real pleased with the results. My finishes were excellent on any material that I turned, acrylic, stabilized wood or CA finish. I didn't think I could improve on them but I thought I would try out your new stuff. Man O Man did the 2 compounds make a difference. The shine is so much deeper than what I had been getting before. I have a pad for each one of the compounds and doesn't take but a few seconds to swap them out.I'm glad I followed your recommendation. Thanks Ernie

Not only did they accurately fill and ship my order within one hour of me placing it, they included a awesome acrylic pen blank for FREE. Prices were great and actually gave price breaks for ordering quantities. Shipping was very reasonable, no price gouging on shipping like a lot of other companies.

Title: Great Company

Rarely write reviews but am compelled to in this case. It is rare in this day and age to come across a company that truly impresses me. My first order I placed I received within 3 or 4 days. Granted I am fairly close to Colorado Springs and figured I just happened to catch the right time of week for there shipping Department. I have placed 10 or 12 orders since then and every one has been shipped immediately, (not to mention cheaply, also). Every order is confirmed personally by Ernie, a personal note on every invoice (which is a very nice touch), and just generally a very nice Individual to work with. That is the ticket. Do not know how big the Company really is, but get the feeling that every order I place is meaningful to them. Had 1 minor problem with a defective part, e-mailed Ernie, and he replaced it immediately! Love this Company! Am forced to occasionally order from another Company, that will remain nameless, and am always disappointed with the service. Pay extra for priority shipping and it still take 3 - 4 days before it ever leaves their warehouse! I truly hope Ernie becomes a big success, he has already proved his dedication to customer service, and hope he is always able to maintain the level of service that he has shown me so far. Good luck to you Ernie, you deserve it.

Ernie with Bear Tooth Woods is not only a great supplier but a great company to deal with. I look back on my purchase history and I have placed an order consistently every month. Every single time I have received the order in less than 4-5 days tops. This is so important when running a business. Every order I have placed, I received a personal email saying the order has been shipped from Ernie himself. Every package has a little something extra as well. Ernie has not only a great company but seems to be a great man as well. Sign up for his newsletter and he tells you a bit about himself and his family in each and every one. Thank you Ernie.

Ok yet again Ernie beat out a different supplier that shall remain nameless. If I combine the time it took for my last TWO orders to get here from Ernie it would still be less time than it took to to get 1 order from those other guys. Plus to take it up yet another notch I NEVER received notification that my order from those guys was ever shipped. So 8 days later a package arrived that I was getting ready to make an inquiry about. Then the final nail in the coffin. Ernie is way over there and those guys are in the same state as I am.

I inquired about some wood blanks that Bear Tooth Woods was selling but they did not have enough for my needs.

I was shocked that he was willing to lose this sale with me so that I could get what I need. That is almost unheard of today. Thank you Ernie and Bear Tooth Woods for your honesty and integrity.

I placed an order on a Saturday morning and received it in the following Monday's mail, and the shipping cost was very fair compared to some of your competitors. I placed an order with another company at the same time that took 9 days to reach me. You wouldn't believe the attitude I got when I inquired about the order.

After ordering materials from every company out there, I can say with no reservations that Ernie and the Bear Tooth staff come out on top with regards to quality, speed of delivery, price, and friendly customer service with a personal touch.

Title: Great Service!

I've placed several orders with Ernie over the past few years. Ordering from Canada from a US-based company can be a crap shoot. Shipping can be an issue, and cross border problems can arise. I've never had any issues with Ernie's shipping. He is fast! He seems to have plating options that no one else has, and he is quick to let you know where the shipment stands. I'll be back, Ernie.

Title: The Best of the Best

If you are looking for quality products at a good price with super-fast, reasonable shipping, then you are at the right place. Even better and more important, the honest, professional and “personal” service from Ernie is far superior to any other place I have ever shopped, and even that is an understatement! All questions and orders are responded to by email very promptly. I will also mention that his very important counterpart, Robin, is vital to the operation, does wonderful work on a periodic newsletter that also treats us with “the personal touch”. Another noteworthy experience is to follow things about them on Twitter. (Something new to myself) There are many more things that could be mentioned, but the best way to experience it is to try it. I am confident you will be pleased. Ardan

Title: The Industry Standard for Customer Service

I've been an enthusiastic customer of BTW for a number of years now and like fine wine, the quality of goods and service (unbelievably) gets even better with age. As others have noted, NOBODY ships orders faster, including the companies who charge extra for "express handling and shipping"! After what I suspect to be nearly a hundred orders, I have never had a single mistake nor have I ever received a defective product. I've referred dozens of fellow turners to BTW and none of them have ever been disappointed. Ernie and Robin (the silent force behind the scenes....) are constantly updating and improving their product line to meet our needs and they go out of their way to treat each customer as their most important one! I appreciate their work every time I deal with them. Thanks, folks! Garrett

Title: Update to my order

I placed 2 orders on the 28 April - 1 with Bear Tooth and one of a similar size with one of the other major supplier in the USA. The Bear Tooth package arrived today along with a couple of extras that Ernie had kindly thrown in and this was on a standard shipping. BRILLIANT SERVICE!!! Sadly, the other company were not quite so brilliant. I got an email from them yesterday to say that my package had just shipped out yesterday - 12 days after I placed my order and to add insult to injury, they have sent it economy on a 4-6 week service when I wanted express and would have paid for it. What makes it worse is that I was desperate for some of the items in the shipment and I will now have to buy more of them and pay another lot of shipping - express this time - to get what I wanted in the first place. I know where my next order will be going if Bear Tooth stock it!!!

My order from BTW showed up in only 3 days! My other order of some rather exotic wood also did not show up until day 9!!!!

Title: Computer circuit board pen kit

This is a great looking pen when finished but beware! It chips very easily. I found that i was unable to do more than just "round" this blank up and then needed to use a lot (1 full sheet cut into 1 inch strips) of 150 grit paper to take it down to its proper size. Once that was done, i used 240/320/400 all dry and started wet sanding with 240 down to about 1000. I finised with two coats of One Step. I'm not sure I'd do another but i must admit that it is a great looking pen and a real conversation starter.

Title: First Try with Tru-Stone

Just finished trying the tru-stone blank for the first time. I used the WildHorse Jasper to make a razor. Worked great but not on the first try. I made the first handle for the razor and it was fantastic (nice to finish, etc) however when I pressed the razor ends into the tubes, the blank cracked. What Now - Had to try again. Once again, it truned nicely and finished with a great luster. I decided to use a small round file to file the ends of the tube for the razor ends. I filed just enough to be able to almost push the razor ends on by hand. I then used epoxy glue on the ends just to make sure end pieces stay secure. End result, a beautiful razor. Picture attached.

Title: Using the Pen Pro for Acrylics

Ernie, I received my Woodchuck Pen Pro on Friday and could not wait to use it. The advertisement was so promising. I glued the handle to the tool and waited for it to dry. I glued up a couple of acrylic pen blanks and trimmed them and setup the lathe and was ready to go. I started turning and could not believe how easy it was to turn acrylic. This has been a problem for me and I have fought it for a couple of years. I would be about done and it blow up and ruin everything. It would dig into the blank, chatter and be to deep. I had tried different speeds, tools and positioning of the tool bar. All along I had the wrong tool. I am very satisfied with the results and will continue to use the Woodchuck Pen Pro. Thank you, DF

Not only was it fast service he also gave me some free blanks. I've used maybe 8 -10 different vendors and Bear Tooth is the best. Johnny Weeks

Title: fast service

Ernie ships faster than any other on-line store, even Amazon. I have made many on-line purchases and nobody can beat Ernie for fast and accurate shipment. The web site is also one of the easiest to navagate. The close up images are a huge help when picking out blanks. Keep up the good work Ernie.

Title: Fantastic!! A grade service!

I have only just started using Bear Tooth Woods and for the 2 orders I placed I have been been exceedingly pleased with the service. Considering international postage times, the kits arrived in good time, any queries were quickly responded to and any concerns were confirmed before the order was filled. Overall an extremely pleasent experience. Prices are reasonable for the parts and the website is great to use. The mix and match deals are a dream and helps to keep costs down. I'm currently working out my next order. Thanks Ernie! I will upload photos later!

Title: Personal Service

I found Bear Tooth Woods through a Google search for pen blanks and did I hit a pot of gold here, they have more blanks than all the others combined, when you order Ernie takes the time to do something extra he writes THANK YOU are your invoice, you dont see that very often in this day and age. His prices are reasonable and the shipping is some of fastest I've seen, he will be getting more of my business in the future.

Title: Superior Acrylic Blanks

Hi Ernie, I was shocked when my order arrived yesterday with my mail. Everything is exactly as ordered plus a bonus blank. Thank you so much for getting it processed and shipped out quickly. It seems like the quality of your pen kits are superior to ones I have made in the past and the blanks are also top notch. I can't wait to turn them and expose their inner beauty. I am finished with buying inferior pen kits and brittle blanks that have cracked ends or arrived stuck together. I am glad I found you and I will definitely shop with you for my future needs. It was great doing business with you. Thanks Again, BW

I am glad that someone takes the time to keep even small customers like myself up to date with new products, special offers and general information regarding the products. I have been purchasing goods for the last few years and will continue to do so due to the quality of them. Whilst pen making is only a hobby for me my friends also appreciate the new styles and designs that I am able to produce as a result of being kept up to date with what is available. Should I ever venture overseas this would be one of the first places I would like to visit.

Being in Australia means that many of the supplies I need for penturning have to be imported, as we have limited suppliers locally.

Title: As Good as it Gets

I have to make a comment. I received my first order today (Monday). I placed the order on Friday. How it got here so fast, over the weekend, I can't even imagine! I work for a national, retail woodworkers store that begins with R. We sell pen kits, blanks, tools, supplies, etc. We have pen turning classes. I come into contact with pen turners on a daily basis, novice and experienced alike. From what I received today, I can tell you we have no acrylic blanks that compare to Beartooth! I've never seen such beautiful blanks and I haven't even turned them yet! While I will still buy our products for everyday pens(after all, I get a discount), I will definitely come to Beartooth when I need that" something special." Beartooth has a great selection of stuff we don't sell. My manager is a big (HUGE) fan of Beartooth and now I am too. Not only will I continue to buy from Beartooth, I will firmly endorse them to all my customers and students. Keep up the excellence! It's rare these days. Thanks!

Title: Ernie does it again

I have been ordering from BTW for a few months now, starting with close-out blanks to build my inventory. I just had to have more. With Ernie's inventory, this was so easy. I have a nice selection, and keep adding more. I had a corporate order from the company i work for. They were to be presentation pen for corporate plant managers around the world. We make dairy production equipment, and have mfg. plants in 22 countries. Thanks to Ernie's fast service, I made my deadline with ease. I placed my order on Sat. morning, and it was waiting for me on Mon. Bear Tooth Woods is the best. I have had problems with every company east of the Mississippi River I have ordered from. I don't know what that means, but I know where the customer is important, and will continue to put my reputation in Ernie's hands when it comes my inventory. Thanks again Jim Marsh.

So receipt of the items was A-1 in a timely manner. I often try a few of a number of different items to test for quality before placing a large order. I am delighted with the blanks I received. The colors are exactly what I want, different, vibrant, and they finish brilliantly. Bravo! Great service. Excellent product. I will be ordering again from Bear Tooth Woods very soon. Thank you.

I placed my last order on Wednesday morning, and it was delivered to my door on Friday morning! I will continue to order, and have already begun to tell all the folks at my turning club about my great experiences.

Title: Visiting this website can be dangerous!

The problem with Ernie's site is that you NEVER get away with just the things you came here to order!!! It is like going to the Home Improvement store: run in for some silicone caulk and end up spending $150.00. Same thing happens to me at Bear Tooth! This is always the first site I visit when it comes time to order supplies. He may not have everything I need, and I freely admit that I visit other sites on occasion, but only because I can't get what I need from Bear Tooth! Others have already talked about the quality and selection, but the primary reason I keep coming back is the incredible customer service Ernie provides! I know I'm far from being one of his major customers, but each time I deal with Bear Tooth, Ernie treats me like the most important customer he has. Orders are always processed quickly and accurately. On occasion I've had unusual "needs" and Ernie has always gone out of his way to help meet those needs if at all possible. I recommend him often; I even recommended his website to an employee of the local Woodcraft store who was having problems finding something I knew Ernie stocked!! Thanks Ernie!

I really appreciate the photos so that you can see what you are buying, and often see what it will look like turned, and the fact that you can get everything from start-to-finish here, from kits and mandrels, to really exotic fantastic blanks. I find things with him that I could not get anywhere else, and I have recommended him enthusiastically to friends and family. It's just the best place to find practically everything for turning pens!

I have found Beartooth Woods to have the finest quality pen kits and supplies available. I have had a few dissapointments on a couple sites with lower priceed "copies" of Berea and some other brand name kits but I have never had a dissapointment with the Genuine Berea kits that Ernie sells on this site. I believe Berea kits are the best value for the money. I also appreciate the fast service and minimum postal rates when placing an order in this site. I was pleased to find out that Ernie recently started stocking Berea project kits like bottle stoppers and key rings etc . This is one of the Presentation Gold Titanium stopper kits I got from Ernie and the quality of the hardware is the best I have ever seen. William Young.

I love this place! I've asked Ernie tons of questions about products, his and in general. I've always gotten good advice I could trust, even when he's sent me to other vendors. He's always welcomed me back...and I've always come back. I've shopped other places and still do for some things, but I buy my staple pen kits here. I didn't used to, but Ernie's prices can't be beat. Today I'm buying stock for me new website. I'll come back again and again. Yeah, I do spend too much. He's ALWAYS got the pens I want ON SALE and there's no way I can pass up saving money. THANKS, Ernie. I like increasing my profit margin without raising my prices.
