Handmade Slimline Lacewood Twist Ink Pen With Gift Box
Handmade Slimline Lacewood Twist Ballpoint Pen
Handmade Slimline Lacewood Wooden Pen
This is a handmade wooden pen with 24 carat gold plating to the hardware and a piece of lacewood for the main pen sections.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is the polished too 12000 grit using Micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish not the woodturners traditional friction polish or wax as these are not durable enough for daily use. Sealing the wood will prevent the natural oils from the skin staining and discoloring this beautiful wood.
This wooden pen uses a twist mechanism and a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers to keep this beautiful pen in use for many years to come.
All of my unique wooden ink pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
