This pen has been made using an Apprentice Roadster style pen kit. The burl wood is Box Elder, which is in the maple family. Care has been taken to apply several layers of color into the wood and then sealed with a super glue (cyanoacrylate) and friction polish finish. This Box Elder burl is native to Wyoming, grew in the Big Horn Mountains and then harvested near Ten Sleep, Wyoming. My pens have a 100% guarantee that covers workmanship and your satisfaction.
American Ash hollow form; 4" tall x 5" wide (X-35). This hollow form was turned when the wood was green causing it to warp and elongate through the pith. The pith has been left in the piece which is highlighted by the dark grain. Leaving the pith in, straight through the middle of the piece, is a technique that is seldom used. The reason is it "usually" results in splits and cracking around the pith. As you can see this hollow form is a success.
