Whisky Cask Handmade Wooden Pen With Gift Box, Offcut & Certificate
Whisky Cask Cigar Pen
Handmade Whiskey Cask Wooden Cigar Ink Pen
This handmade wooden cigar pen with the pen barrels hand crafted from a piece of an oak whisky cask in my own UK workshops. Whiskey casks were traditionally made by coopers although they also made buckets, tubs, butter churns, kegs, butts and pipes this is another one of our wooden crafts that have disappeared. The pens hardware has a high-quality 24-carat gold-plated trim 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 Birthday or Father's Day gifts for men.
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 super glue are applied this is then polished to 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 discolouring this beautiful wood.
This pen has a double twist mechanism and uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black gel 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 my unique wooden ink pens come in a black presentation 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 unique novelty wooden Birthday, Christmas or Father's Day gift ideas.
