Story Wood Collection: Recycled Vintage Australian Red Cedar
This is a gift set with a story. This Australian red cedar pen and pencil 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 and pencil carries within it many family memories. This matching Slimline style pen and pencil set is classy gift that will be loved by those who appreciate fine writing instruments.
Australian red cedar timber really shines a striking reddish brown and has very fine dark brown striations along the grain.
This pen and pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each one on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This timber Slimline style pen and pencil set has gold 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 and the pencil is a pacer style mechanical pencil. Refills for both the pen and pencil can be added below.
This pen set is presented in a quality black presentation case or you can choose an engrave-able double timber box below.
