These are a wood pen and pencil set made by me in the Streamline style and turned on a woodturning lathe in my UK workshops. This pen set has chrome plated trim and are made from a highly figured piece of curly maple showing lots of chatoyance. Curly Maple is not actually a species but a description of the wood grain.
The mechanical wooden pencil has a click mechanism to extend the 0.7mm lead.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then upto 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.
The pen uses a black ballpoint cross style 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.
The first two photos are some of my stock photos, the actual pen set is the last photo.
All of my pen sets 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 executive desk sets will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
