State House Elm

Special Woods

Special woods in stock are Lilac from the Shelburne Museum.  Wood from a dying Amercan Elm from the Vermont State House lawn.


I have a few blanks of very nice cherry burl. Maple burl and Antique American Chestnut from the Shenandoah Valley.  

 I gather it from many sources, weather damaged trees, firewood, scrap wood from wood shops and waste wood from a local mill.  Exclusively Vermont Wood Products

 are more than a beautifully crafted writing instrument. Like a baton is to a conductor, a pen to a writer is a powerful tool that brings inspiration almost like magic. Many cultures believe in the mystery and magic of different types of wood.  Trees are magical aren't they? How a tiny seed will grow into a Burley old oak tree that will be on your family property for generations, it will watch your children grow, your grandchildren grow, the tree will give you shade in the summer, light in the winter, provide homes to birds and squirrels, Trees really are magical, and the wood from the tree is just as magical and special. It is with the love of trees and the magic wood that I have hand crafted these pens for you.


Pick them up, hold them, try them out.  My pens are a gift  - give to yourself, or to a loved one, companion or peer, and spread the magic.  Every time they write something they will think of you.  Feel secure in your purchase as I stand behind the quality, beauty, and strength of my product; if you are unsatisfied with one of my handcrafted pens, please return it for a full refund.
