The Short and Stumpy Crack
PENdemic Pen Holders are my first attempt at making pens on a wood lathe while I'm stuck at home during this Covid19 pandemic. I'm still learning, so each pen has little imperfections...or, little personalities if you will! :) They are unique and one of a kind, and one day when I become a global pen turning sensation you'll be able to say I own one of her very first pens!
This design is lovingly called the Short and Stumpy. It's measures just over 4" long and has a wide grip. It has a beautiful big crack from a knot in the wood, but I don't think it effects the strength of the wood...just looks really cool! It is made from the off cuts of walnut cabinetry and finished in a natural oil.
The brass flange is fitted for G style nibs such as the Nikko G.
