Worlds most interesting wood pen?

Yeah, I think so too.  I cut a chunk of walnut off of a downed tree.  The log was very wet, full of bugs, and quite ugly, but I was hoping for some quality walnut in the middle.  I started turning it into a bowl but it was just too messy.  I cut off a small chunk and tried for a pen.  It's not perfect, but it is definitely an interesting grain pattern.  The top part is polka dotted while the bottom part looks like marble.  I'm going to try and get a couple more out of this log.


  1. Nice outdoor photography. :) Oh, and nice pen.

  2. Very unusual grain pattern. . .I love it.
