One of the only cross-cut offerings in our entire shop, this writer's pen is made from carpentry "cutoffs" (the waste end sections remaining after making cuts), assembled into a symmetrical, yet abstract pattern. While each pen in this series will look slightly different from one another, all will closely mirror the pen shown in the photos.
Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
Because of the design of this pen, I cannot offer an engraving service.
