WRITING WOOD - Red Sox Bench Pen

This vendor makes high-quality pens encased in wood. Not being a pen aficionado myself I never spent much time lingering over her stock UNTIL -- the Red Sox bench pen! This pen is made from the bench the Red Sox used during games 3 & 4 of the 2004 World Series!!! HOW COOL IS THAT?? The artist also makes bottle stoppers (which I have purchased), and very nice pen and pencil sets that I covet. The artist also works on comission. From the website: "It is amazing how many times a year I make a pen out of the pruned branches of a favorite tree or a sentimental family tree. I have made all styles of pens from all types of Maple, Apple, Cherry, and even oak. I have the equipment to take a pruned branch and dry it so I can cut it down to make a pen or bottle stop. This drying process normaly takes a week or two. Below is one of six pens I made from the branches of an apple tree that a grandfather planted and harvested from in the mid 50's. These pens were given during the holidays as a very sentimental gift to family members."
