Garrison Hollow Oak Series

The Garrison Hollow Collection is the first in our series. The barn dates back to the early 1900’s. The wood selections include red oak, chestnut, and other species.

Closeup of Garrison Hollow PenThis pen was turned from a red oak timber. As you can see from the close-up, I was able to save a bit of a worm hole in the top portion of the pen. Saving these “marks of character” require a great deal of patience as well as using some stabilizing materials.

This particular pen is a Trimline Twist in a gun metal finish.

Introducing Barnwood Pens

Barnwood Pens desires to preserve a small part of the rich history of barns built in America. Founder John Stuart’s personal hobby of pen turning is combined with his desires to preserve classic Americana. This can be seen in each pen’s natural patina including the imperfections that add to the beauty.

Our first endeavor will be working with wood from a dismantled barn in Washington County, Indiana. The Garrison Hollow barn dates back to the early 1900’s. We’ve found a variety of woods that were used: red oak, poplar, and chestnut.

Our online store will be open in time for Christmas Shopping! In the meantime, follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.
