Slimline Ball-point Desk Pen in Natural Maple
With business card holder.

This Desk Pen Set was made from wood salvaged from an old shipping pallet. One of the fun things about using slavaged wood is you never know what you are getting until you use it. When I first cleaned up the boards, I thought it was a type of walnut because the surface had a brownish tone, but after I turned a piece down for the pen and saw the lighter tone come through, I realized it was probably maple (note the wood in the background is my maple benchtop). No matter the species, the grain has a striking pattern that I further enhanced by shaping the base to follow the grain pattern. Adding a few coats of a wipe-on polyurethane helped to further enhance the contrast in the wood grain. The result created a stunning base for the pen. The pen is made with a standard Slimline pen kit. The Funnel is made in the chiseled Parker style.
