Wood Pen Blanks

Choose from our large range of African and Australian wood pen blanks and make amazing handmade wooden pens that show up the natural beauty of wood.

A handmade wooden pen is a writing instrument that oozes class and craftmanship and choosing a quality wood pen blank is as much a part of the crafting as turning the pen. Choose a wood pen blank with character and full-bodied grain to subtly and quietly show your superior pen making talent.

When you are putting in effort to make a beautiful pen, the last thing you want is a pen blank cut from plain wood without character or grain. We make it easy to choose a quality wooden pen blank with our high definition pictures of the wood grain of our blanks. Although wood is by nature varied and each wood blank is unique, the high definition pictures give you a very good idea of what to expect from our blanks in each wood type.

Natural beauty

Our range of wood pen blanks is sourced from the harsh environments of Africa and Australia, where one can experience floods and droughts, extremely high and low temperatures and still humidity as well as gale force winds. The trees growing in such harsh environments adapt to the climate and the extremes cause the wood to develop amazing grains with unmatched depth and beauty. Although our wood pen blanks are cut from sustainable sources, many of them are rare woods and some have very limited supply.

Our wood pen blanks have been properly dried before cutting and are cut and planed to a very high quality, making them ideal for both beginner and professional pen makers.

Burl wood pen blanks

Burl (or burr) wood blanks are made from trees that have developed a growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner and may contain small voids. It is commonly found in the form of a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch that is filled with small knots from dormant buds and results from a tree undergoing some form of stress such as an injury, virus or fungus. These features produce beautiful highly defined knotty patterns and are highly sought after for pen making and other small wood turning projects.
