This is a Cigar style mechanical pencil turned out of Box Elder Burl dyed in violet and gold, with Chrome hardware. It is 6 inches long and weighs about 2 ounces. The pencil is a twist action, requiring just a quarter twist to expose and retract the .5 mm lead.

Sometimes called “Ash-leaved Maple” because of its non-typical leaves,Box Elder is technically considered a maple tree (Acer genus). This wood has been dyed a combination of gold and violet to make a very stunning writing instrument. It reminds me a little of Van Gogh's "A Starry Night".

It is a very comfortable pencil for those with larger hands or for those who have trouble grasping smaller objects. It's about 11 mm in diameter where I grasp it for writing.

A bit about of the process of creating these pens: I start with a hand-selected section of wood and the components that make up the mechanism of the pen. I then cut the wood to length and drill holes to make room for the mechanism. The prepared blank is set up on my lathe, and I then spend a fair amount of time working the wood down to the proper diameter and shape to match the mechanism. Sand paper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finish are applied and buffed. The wood and mechanism are then combined to create a fabulous writing instrument.
