Here is a list of the woods we work with. We’ll be updating this page as we go with example pictures of finished projects. We’re partnering with a wood-database. If you click the name of a wood it will take you to their website so you can learn more about the species you’re looking at.
This list is not exhaustive, and if you have a particular wood you’re looking for a pen out of and don’t see it here contact us about aquiring it. Also if you’re looking for special woods such as historical pieces, whiskey or wine barrels, or other unique pieces you’ll find them in that subsection of our materials page.
For a general list of many of the species that I use. Please click on this link for a wood-database. Otherwise scroll down for examples of each wood. Each name will take you to the database page for that species.
Burled wood is one of the most desirable wood types. Burls are caps and growths of wood that form interesting and unique grain patterns.
Spalting refers to typically black lines of fungus and decay that creep through older wood after its fallen from a tree. It is also incredibly desirable and rarer than their non-spalted counterparts. These woods are typically softer and require stabilization which impregnates the wood with a hard epoxy resin that increases its strength.
