This pen is made from wood gifted by Karson. Ironwood, I do believe it is. Isn’t the wood beautiful?

I, unfortunately, broke the second half of the blank (the drill bit wasn’t centred correctly) so I’ve missed out on having two of these gorgeous pens. But… the “plus” is that I got this one!

This pen doesn’t have a purpose at this time (all the other pens were made for birthday presents – yes, it’s been a busy month for birthdays!

I just want to give a big thanks to Karson for this (and the other) beautiful wood that you sent me.

You are welcome Debbie. The pen sure looks great.

Keep one for yourself. I’ve kept a Desert Ironwood pen for my use also.

I might just have to do that, Karson! :)

you’re probably right woodworm—I’m sure I’ll be inspired just by holding it!

Definitely beautiful, A pen with no purpose? Try using it to write with.

The whole pen turning experience is pretty cool by itself, but add a nice piece of wood and it don’t get no better than that. Very well done young lady.

Ms Debbie, that looks like Aussie ironwood. Very hard wood. Great job
