Default One of a kind pen blank

Get busy liviní or get busy dyiní

Itís from the tree in Shawshank Redemption where Red goes to dig up the box on his way to see his friend, Andy, in Zihuatanejo. Iíve been sitting on this for about 2 years and I finally figured out what Iím going to do with it. Iím going to make 2 pens with it and one is going to a charity thatís near & dear to my heart for it to be auctioned off.

Iíll have to go back and see if I kept this guys info but I was tooling around the internet and found a guy that made a pen from this tree. I contacted him to see if had anymore blanks or any info where he got them and he gave me this guys contact info.

The guys name is Jackson and he owns preservationpens.com

He gets all kinds of cools stuff like wood from the old Norte Dame Stadium to old Army barracks.

Heading up to Rockler sometime this week to get some fresh CA glue for the finish. Don’t want to risk the blank on the old stuff I have.
