    2 years ago when walking around my family's garden I found this cool little looking birch "tree" which was growing horizontally with 2 trees growing vertically on top. I knew immediately that it would be some great wood for making pens! After letting it dry for almost 2 years, it was now finally...

    Dad's old fountain pen

    I was going through old photos and labeling them. Dad had a box that held a lot of things including this old fountain pen. It is a Parker. It is black and may have some accenting in the grooves. I think he might have had this during WWII in the South Pacific. Not really sure how old it is. Don't...
