This pen is made from driftwood I collected while on vacation at the beach in Florida. It was fun to see what was underneath the worn gray exterior of the driftwood. The little critter holes add to the character of the pen too.

Did you know that collecting driftwood may be prohibited in some areas? Make sure you check your local rules to make sure it’s ok to collect driftwood.

Drift away to the beach for a few minutes and check out my video of this project.

Fantastic pen! The pretty wood, holes and nice grain patterns go really well with the kit and add great character. The finish is great as well.

Have your say...
