Wood Pens of all shapes and sizes
Choose from our large and ever growing selection of wood to create the custom look that makes your pen exactly what you want. You may notice that we tend to pair the nicer wood with the nicer pen kits, for example the Magnet pen stands out for its Black Titanium metal and unique magnetic cap, so we include some of our nicer wood choices as a standard option included in that price. Some of our simple pens like the Slim Pen are also available in a variety of options for wood, however they are more affordable even with exotic wood such as redwood.
Our Pen-Making Process
The Character of the wood we use is an important factor when we are choosing it, we look for wood with a personality of its own. The features we look for include unique colors, patterns, and knots to make that pen stand out from the rest. Once we have turned the block of wood on the lathe, we use a series of sandpaper to smooth it to the consistency of paper. When the wood is ready, the type of finish has a lot to do with the final color of your pen, this can make it either stay a similar color or make it much darker. After we apply several coats of finish, we take an extra step that most craftsmen either don’t know how to do or skip it to save time, we actually apply 8 coats of super glue type epoxy. This not only gives your pen a gleaming glass like finish, but ultimately protects the actual wood from ware and tare altogether. A wood pen made without this feature would actually absorb the oils from your hands and the other things it comes in contact with, so you can see how important it is for us to take the extra time to reinforce and preserve the precious wood portion of you custom pen. After all that we finish the process with a high gloss polish that makes your pen absolutely glow, you won’t be able to help yourself from falling in love with it the first time you lay eyes on it. Frankly, every time we make of these amazing writing tools we have a hard time parting with it!
