A number of Raw Materials can be used to create a one-of-a-kind, artistic pen.

Wood

Most penturners have made at least a few pens out of wood. Woods are sourced from all over the world. For the purposes of this Wiki, we refer to Domestic woods as those sourced in North America and considered to be common (easily located). Exotic woods are those considered to be imported from other countries, with a few native species that are also somewhat rare. A third category of wood blanks are those that are manufactured from wood or wood by-products.
