My brother and my nephew have birthdays coming up and each will receive a pen.
The stained one (has a reddish tinge to it) is for my brother. It is made from barnboard from our great-grandfather’s barn.
My nephew’s pen is … hmm… wood lol :)
The barnboard was difficult to turn because it was so soft. Once I had it shaped, I gave it a coat of crazy glue, buffed it up and then finished it with a coat of the cabernet stain and shellac. I hope that this mixture will give it some strength. —if not, well, I guess another pen will be in the works for Christmas ;)
