I collected some fallen branches from a birch tree this winter. I turned one into some pen blanks, and you see the results above. I also burned in a few lines to give the light coloured wood some more character. This particular piece has some bark inclusions in it, which also added some character. This is currently one of my favourite pens. It is finished with friction polish.

Great use of the fallen trees. I like to do that too rather than just burn it- expecially pretty wood…........Jim
