Pens ...

... Made by Me - (Actually, I selected the wood, turned, and finished. The pen hardware is from a kit.) -

The wood for the above pen is Burl Maple and the pen kit is the Streamline American Screw Cap pen kit.

- The wood for the above pen is American Chestnut, which is almost extinct. In the eastern states, the American Chestnut was attacked by the Chestnut Blight, when some orient chestnut trees were imported. By 1910 the eastern states American Chestnut trees were all dead. The pen kit is the Wall Street II pen kit. - The wood I used is over 200 years old and came from the Whitmer farm.

- The wood for both pens were given to me by my brother, Frank. Thank you Frank.

- I think Christmas has come early for me.
