Wood Selection



All the woods I use for my pens come from responsible merchants that source timber from sustainable and managed forests.

To make pricing easy, you will see each pen has two prices -  'Main wood set’  and ‘Burl / Burr wood’.

Please note as wood is a natural substance the colours and grains will vary and the wood may also mellow and change colour with age.

My pens can be made with any wood, but I have listed below a good selection, however, if you have a special piece of your own wood you would like me to use for your pen or from another wood not listed here please contact me.

NEW - SPECIAL WOODS  (Pens with history)

These pens are made with wood that have a historic or interesting background and really give my pens extra character and charm as well as making a great talking point!
