These pens were specially made for the farmer who gave the Burly Maple tree to me for pen-turning. His Grandfather & Grandmother owned the land, before him, where the tree once stood for many, many years. The farmer was planning to use the tree for some good firewood but kindly allowed me to harvest the wood for turning into these fine Millermark Pens. If interested in pens made from this tree you may email or fill out the "Custom Order" section on the website. firstname.lastname@example.org
These Millermark Pens were hand-turned from an Extremely Burly Maple tree. The Euro style pen, resting in the burly pen display, is set in chrome hardware. The Cigar style is resting on a chunk of the burl and is set in chrome hardware as well. Notice the wonderful contrast between the colors of light and dark browns, separated by prominent black lines.
