Dogwood Pen

So a co-worker of mine has a dogwood tree that her daughter really likes. She asked me to make a box with a picture of dogwood blooms on it. Inside the box she wanted me to put a pen made out of the tree. She brought me a limb from the tree and it had a knot from an old branch. I believe this is the prettiest pen I’ve made to date!

Woods: dogwood

Tools: lathe

Beautiful work David. How much time involved to produce that beauty if I may ask?

Thank you Jack! It takes me about 3 hours to make a pen after I sort through the materials of course!
