A Thuya burl twist pen with a high-quality chrome-plated trim and figured Thuya burl for the pen sections. The wood is difficult to work but has a spectacular finish to it.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue applying then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs sealing 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 exotic wood pens are big and masculine and as such will make ideal wooden gifts for men.
This Thuya burl pen has a double twist mechanism and a Parker style G2 medium point black refill available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my pen gifts for him come in a presentation box as standard. With every piece of wood different, these burl wood pens make unique handmade wooden gifts for Father’s Day or Birthday gifts.
