My name is Rick Redekop, I am from Swift Current, Saskatchewan and have pretty much lived in the area most of my life. I am married and have a blended family of 5 kids.
I have enjoyed working in many industries including construction, retail, and the hospitality industry. I have settled down in business and currently work as an accountant at Stark & Marsh CPA, LLP in Swift Current.
When I was in high school, I found that I enjoyed working with my hands and building projects, my favourite material being lumber. I have always seemed to have a knack for working with wood and have built many things including, shelves, above ground planters and even bunk beds. My brother-in-law introduced me to pen turning. I found I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make a hobby of it. I make pens, pencils, key-chains and various other items. I work with both local and exotic woods and am planning on expanding into acrylics and plastics.
