Writing Box

Writing Box

I built this writing box as a gift, designed to hold pens and cards.  The main wood is western yew, and banded by a limited edition banding.  The pen tray is flocked in bright green.

I am turning these pens from various hardwoods.  When I find a piece of wood with good figure or lustre I put it aside and use it for these pens.  The hardware is from Lee Valley Tools, and of good quality.  This particular fountain pen uses standard cartridges but also has a converter to use liquid ink.  The nib is iridium and made in Germany.  It writes very well, a medium size so it gives a nice bold line.  I am selling these pens now on Etsy, each one is unique.

Birch Candle Sticks

Birch Candle Sticks

These candle sticks are created from birch boughs, seasoned and drilled to accept tea light candles.  I have sold a few at Christmas fairs and by word or mouth.  They make a nice center piece for Thanksgiving or Easter when you are celebrating the season and want to bring a little outside in.
