This handmade, matched set includes a Rollerball Pen, Ballpoint Pen and matching hardwood case made from the same recycled weatherboard.  The timber of the Ballpoint Pen, Rollerball Pen and case have been finished in exactly the same way in a lustrous matt black lacquer and the same chrome trim has been used on both pens. 

The pens and case are made from a discarded hardwood weatherboard. Weatherboards were usually rough cut in widths of 20-30cms tapering from about 20mm to 6mm. They were laid overlapping vertically and nailed directly to the timber frame of the house. Weatherboards began to fall out of favour in the 1950s, replaced by the more precision cut, interlocking timber chamferboards.

This particular weatherboard looks very old with many layers of paint and had weathered to a dull grey where the paint had peeled off. The weatherboard was was first cut into lengths 150mm wide. These 150mm wide lengths were then cut into pieces 150mm long x 18mm square, centre drilled, reinforced with brass tubes, cut to fit the pen, then turned on the lathe. The first cut revealed an uninteresting pale brown timber colour which sanded to a close grained, fairly smooth finish so I decided to give it a matt black finish. 

Weatherboards are a very basic, simple form of building material and in keeping with it's heritage, the timber hasn't been overworked to a fine glossy finish but rather left so that it still feels like wood. 

Please note that each pen is slightly different and the picture is indicative. Each one is hand made and they do not have the uniformity and 'perfection' of a mass produced product.

This Rollerball pen takes a quality German made Schmidt 888 refill and the ballpoint pen takes standard Cross refills.
