Yes, it’s just a pen. But this is the first time I cut out blanks from a fresh wet log, dried it, and make a pen out of it. It’s from my bradford pear tree that I recently got topped off. The wood is kinda boring to look at without any well defined grain lines, but I can at least say this pen came out my tree that I see everyday!!
I cut out 0.75”-1.00” blanks and dried them in the microwave on defrost for a while. Then I let them air dry for a couple weeks, weighing them everyday until the weight stabilized.
