Two new pens

Jake took a couple of pen orders the other day and one person asked for a wood that had red tones to it and the other guy said surprise me. I had a piece of tulip wood lying around so I figured that could fill the red pen.



Jake went rooting through the pen blanks and grabbed a piece of yellow wood that was, quite frankly, ugly. I have no clue what this wood is so if you do, chime in and let us both know!

Beautiful pens! I am sure the customer will be happy. Could it be canarywood? Yellow birch?

I had thought it might be yellow birch and canary wood never entered my feeble mind.

I went back to Woodcraft today to pick up some more supplies and spoke to the smartest guy in the store (his self proclaimed title) and he confirmed that the yellow wood is yellowheart.

Some very nice pens. For an ugly piece of wood, it sure made a nice pen. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Yellowheart! Makes sense. It sure does look good in pen form!

I really like yellowheart. That pen turned out very nicely. How'd the tulipwood turn? My daughter just picked up a tulipwood blank the other day and asked what it was... I may try my hand at a little something for her with it.

The tulipwood turned very nicely and was easy to shape. Jake got it down to where he wanted it and then sanded it to its final shape/size without much fuss.
