Whisky Cask Wooden Pen With Gift Box, Offcut & Certificate Of Authenticatio
Whisky Cask Cigar Pen
Handmade Whiskey Cask Wooden Cigar Pen
This handmade wooden pen is styled upon a cigar with the pen barrels made from a piece of a wooden oak whisky cask in my own UK workshops. Whiskey casks where traditionally made by coopers although they also made buckets, tubs, butter churns, kegs, butts and pipes but sadly this is another one of our wooden crafts that has nearly disappeared. The pens hardware has a high quality 24 carat gold plating with some black detailing.
These pens have a certificate of authenticity, an up graded pen box and an offcut of the original oak cask stave and as such will make ideal handmade gifts for men on birthdays or father's day.
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 has a double twist mechanism and uses a black Parker 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.
All of my wooden pens come in a black presentation/gift box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even from within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make lovely and unique novelty wooden gifts for birthdays and christmas or any other special occasion.
