A Handmade Sierra Pen with Thuya Burr Wood
A Sierra Hand made Wooden Thuya Burr Pen
This is a sierra style handmade wooden pen hand turned in my UK workshops with a twist mechanism and a high quality chrome and gun-metal trim . The pen barrel has been handcrafted from a piece of Thuya burr wood.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micromesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.If the wood is not sealed properly and with a durable non wear finish the natural oils from the skin will stain and discolour the wood.
This pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my wood 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 lovely unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
