Item details

This handmade pen was made from salvaged Hickory wood and gold colored hardware based on a slimline design.
It uses standard Cross Style ink refills. There is a black ink pre-installed in the pen.
I can also send a blue ink refill in addition to the black that it comes with. Just select that option when purchasing.

The finish is a durable satin CA that should hold up well over time. The finish on this also allows you to feel the wood grain.

Unique markings on this pen include the lighter cut of hickory that has a small part of the dark hickory up near the top. The color of hickory can vary quite a bit, this pen was made mostly from the light part of the wood and the finish it very light and allows you to see and feel the wood grain. Picture 4 zooms in on the grain so you can see it better.

This pen comes with a 3D printed case that has room to store 2 extra inks (sold separately) and can also be used as a display stand. The color of the case will be random, but if you want a specific color case, send me a message and I’ll see if I have one in that color. I can also put names, designs, or logos on the lid of the case for an extra $10. Ask about customizing before purchase and I’ll get back to you asap.


FAQs

Absolutely. Just tell me what you are interested in, and I'll be glad to look into making something for you. I will ask questions in return to clarify anything that I need to know. My goal is to make sure you are happy with your order. If you see something you like, but want it a little different (or something completely different). Don't hesitate to ask.

I have access to the following. (Thin stock and thick slabs) Ash, Cherry, Northern Catalpa, Red Elm, Eastern Red Cedar, Hickory, Hard or Soft Maple, Spalted or Ambrosia Maple (limited quantities), Red or White Oak, and Black Walnut. All these are also available in live edge.

95% of the wood I use is locally Salvaged wood. The trees were taken down due to storm damage, safety issues, property improvements, etc.. They were not harvested for their wood, they were saved from becoming firewood. Many trees taken down for these reasons end up as firewood, and that's a shame because the wood is great looking. The Mill I source my wood through takes the trees, mills them down to boards and kiln dries the wood so it's usable for just about anything. I then buy the rough sawn boards and cut them to size, plane them and use them as needed. The only wood purchased at the store is knotty pine, and this is only for certain projects and will be noted in the materials of that item.

Absolutely! I enjoy chatting with and supporting fellow woodworkers and seeing projects you have worked on. If you need something, just ask. I just need to know what type of wood you need. I can supply rough sawn blanks, whole boards, pen blanks in various thicknesses and lengths, boards with keyholes, etc.. Just ask, and I'll see what I can get for you. I'll Even make Glue-up boards if you need something glued up.

Anything is my shop is okay to pick up locally if you live near Johnsburg Illinois. You can either buy the item and I'll refund the shipping when picked up locally, or ask for a listing with no shipping charges and I'll make a listing for you. I do not have a good way to ship large tables. All tables bigger than 19" in either dimension will need to be picked up locally.

If you want multiple items and want me to look into combined shipping, let me know. 2 options here. I can make a custom listing for the items you want with a custom shipping quote. Or Buy the items you want and I'll refund the difference in shipping.

For single pen orders These are in a pen shipping tube and mailed in a padded envelope. Cost is about $3-$4 to ship them anywhere in the U.S. For 3 or more pens These will be shipped in a USPS flat-rate box. If you want it shipped differently, just ask, I'm happy to quote other methods of shipping.

Absolutely! I tested these pens in an office environment and made sure the type of finish I'm using will hold up to daily use. I tested a couple dozen types of finish and the CA finish holds up the best. Beware of cheaper pens. If the cheap pen only has a wax finish or a friction polish, they will look great at first, but with some use, the shiny finish will fade to a dull finish. If you're looking at a cheaper pen, ask the seller what type of finish is on it. If you're only looking to display the pen, and nobody will be using it or touching it, then the wax or friction finish is fine, but if it will be used or handled, then you want the CA finish since it holds up well when being used.
