Imperial Redwood Burl Pen Blanks are a standard on to themselves. As an oversized 1″ highly figured burl pen blank, we hand select the pieces chosen to be cut down to this size. Cut from salvaged “OG” (old growth) stumps our pen blanks are taken from the same wood we cut all our other blanks from. The burl itself was salvaged from an enormous stump, many of which are 12+ feet tall. These stumps remain in the coastal forests of northern CA and just north of the California/Oregon boarder. When in the presence of the trees, in these ancient forests, one can’t help but be in awe of their beauty. The stumps serve as a reminder of what is left from so many giants that were logged back in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. As one of the most symbolically important trees to the Western United States, the California Coastal Redwood is admired and respected by millions. The Redwood’s unique characteristics, immense size and beauty, as well as its historical significance set these majestic trees apart from all others. NW Imperial redwood burl pen blanks are larger than most offered by other craft supply companies. We choose to cut ours this size because we absolutely love this species, and believe there are many uses for these beauties beyond a pen. As an excellent tone wood tone, durable and able to take a beating, we like to think our Imperial Redwood Burl Pen Blanks can be utilized in dozens of applications.
