Pens With A Story: Salvaged Red Cedar
This is a pen with a story. This Australian red cedar pen used to be a dressing table. It was made in the 1940’s for Iris by her carpenter brother and spent many decades holding hairbrushes, mirrors and delicate embroidered handkerchiefs. When Iris passed away, the dresser was inherited by her daughter, Gail. Gail didn't have room in her home for the old but still so lovely dressing table, but wanted to preserve and honour her family heritage so she had pens made from the lovely vintage red cedar timber for herself and her three children (Iris’s grand children). This pen carries within it many family memories.
This matching pen and pencil set is classy gift that will be loved by those who appreciate fine writing instruments. They are perfect for writers, executives, artists, planners, teachers and make great graduation or birthday gifts.
This wooden pen and pencil set is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the recycled Australian red cedar timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen and pencil we create are one of a kind.
This slimline style pen and pencil set has chrome fittings and features a high quality, smooth, twist mechanism for the pen. This pen has black ink and takes a standard cross style pen refill. Find our cross style pen refills here. The pencil is a pacer style mechanical pencil, find mechanical pencil refills here.
