These are pen blanks cut from barrels used to age wine in the renowned wine country of Napa California. These blanks have the reddish color near the edge when drilled correctly can really add a pop to your pens. This is for the blank only. If you would like a pen made from this wood please feel free to contact me as I do make pens to order. Each blank will come with a business card sized certificate. The picture is prior to cutting and the finished blank will be almost 1" square by 5 inches long and of oak.
