About Us

Welcome to Iowacobb Pen Turning Supplies, a division of Pleasantville Pensmithing, owned and operated by Tim McGill. We are located in Central Iowa, in the heart of USA. Iowa is known for growing corn and raising livestock, so it is only natural for corn cobs to be our specialty.

Tim is an experience pen turning and enjoys his time at the lathe as well as time spent helping others. His specialty is pens crafted from corn cobs and vintage barnwood. Growing up on a farm in Southern Iowa, Tim has long enjoyed nature’s beauty and working with his hands. Early woodworking experiences started in shop classes at school and continued in his Grandpa’s workshop. Many years later, in his own workshop, the art of woodworking continues.

Iowacobb began as an Ebay store in 2005 selling natural wood blanks and stabilized corn cobs pen blanks. The Iowacobb Ebay store still exists, but is now reserved for miscellaneous items not offered on the Iowacobb.com site.

  1. I would like to purchase two full corn cob blanks pre drilled for a PSI bolt action pen. I can’t find a way to specify the size of the hole I would like drilled. Thanks
