Product Information:

We have searched high and low for reclaimed wood for these unique pen blanks. This four-piece set includes one each of the following blanks: Maple and Birch from a lake in Maine, Oak from the Ohio River, and Heart Pine from a mill in Maine. Talk about the perfect item to recycle or upcycle – these last scraps from processing can be used for gift pens that will be cherished for many more years. Our reclaimed Maple and Birch logs share a rich history with Maine’s legendary logging industry. These historically significant logs, referred to as “deadheads,” sank during the log drives across Maine’s lakes and rivers beginning in the early 1600s. Hardwood logs, which could not be floated downriver, were chained to buoyant softwoods and rafted to the mills for processing. Since the weather on northern Maine lakes changes quickly and dramatically, many of the rafts were lost or abandoned during storms. Resting undisturbed, these logs were perfectly preserved by fresh Maine water and protected from timber’s worst enemies – direct sunlight, pests, and oxygen. Centuries later, this sunken treasure is finally being recovered.
Flooring and structural timbers found in the Maine mill date from the 1700s and 1800s and are exceptional examples of first growth Heart Pine.
The Oak logs have emerged from the Ohio River as a one-of-a-kind treasure. They have been in the river for 100 to 200 years.
All the blanks are stable and easy to turn. No two will be the same.
