Wooden Whiskey Cask Rollerball With Presentation Box
Wooden Whiskey Cask Executive Rollerball Pen
Wooden Whiskey Cask Rollerball
This is a handmade rollerball pen that has been hand turned by me on a woodworking lathe in my own UK workshop. The pen has a high quality chrome plating with black details too the pens hardware with a non postable cap. This is a big pen, the sort of thing to use while writing cheques and making a statement. The pen barrels are turned from an old oak whiskey cask stave.
The section of stave 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 discolouring this beautiful wood.
These fine writing pens use a high quality ceramic rollerball liquid ink refill, other refills are readily available from any good stationery suppliers.
This executive pen is of a lovely quality and has a look of pure elegance about it. These rollerballs give the unique style and originality of something handmade and yet have the fine writing ability of a fountain pen. This pen also has an upgrade presentation box, a certificate of authenticity and an offcut of the original whiskey cask stave for an original wooden gift.
All of my 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 handmade wooden pens will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, fathers day, christmas or birthday gifts.
