Doyle Wheeler approaches life just like he does pens; everything is possible. Throw anything his way and he will make it work for him.
The first lathe Wheeler ever received was from his father. He tinkered with it off and on, not really committing to the craft but enjoying the rhythm of turning a pen. The first ones he ever made became Christmas gifts for family and friends but he insists they weren't any good.
It's what every budding artist – excuse me, craftsman – would say of their early work.
Craftsmanship is in Wheeler's blood. His grandparents built their home in Spokane from the ground up.
