Sierra Wooden Ballpoint Pen With Masur Birch With Gift Box
Sierra Unique Wooden Pen-Masur Birch
Sierra Pen With Masur Birch
This is a wooden sierra ballpoint pen with a polished high quality chrome trim with gold details, handcrafted in my UK workshops on a wood turning lathe with traditional tools and techniques.
This wood pen barrel has been hand turned from a unique piece of Masur Birch, this is a lovely piece of wood with lots of figure and some chatoyance, normally found as veneer on high quality furniture.
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. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish not the wood turners 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 ballpoint pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
Any of these pens are lovely gift ideas for people who love writing or appreciate the woodworking crafts.
All of my unique wooden 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 wooden ball pens will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
