Pens With A Story: Timber Off Cuts from Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan's bed - New Guinea Rosewood
This is a pen with a celebrity story. This pen is made from some New Guinea Rosewood timber off cuts from Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan's bed. A local Australian master craftsman named Gary was commissioned to custom make a timber bed for Russell Crowe who was romantically involved with Meg Ryan at the time (1999 - 2001). Gary stored the off cuts of the stunning New Guinea Rosewood in his shed in Grafton NSW until meeting up with Lathe & Chisel and donating them to our small business. Thanks Gary.
This is a special, limited edition pen.
New Guinea Rosewood is a beautifully figured and richly coloured hardwood from South East Asia. The heartwood is either a golden brown colour or a dark blood red, the timber in this pen is a lovely rose colour. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
This slimline style wood pen 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 timber.
This slimline style pen has gold fittings and features a high quality, smooth, twist mechanism. This pen has black ink and takes a standard cross style pen refill.
