Default Article about a pen I made

I was asked if I would submit an article about a pen I recently finished. It was from a peg used in building a house in 1880. Here is the link in case anyone is interested.
Pine Peg Pen – Using Reclaimed Wood to Capture a Memory | Pen Turning Network

Thanks

Phil

I had the opportunity to turn some 200 year old yellow heart pine from a one room house that was built on the property of my wife's grand daddy. It too, still has pine sap in it.
Nice pens.

Great write up Phil! Special memories pens!
The pens look great! Being so sappy, is there some translucency to them?

What are you calling me SAPPY?

There is some translucent places on the pen. It almost like the sap is the entire layer.
