Hand Crafted Wooden Pens!

At Watts Tree Farm we strive to put any trees harvested to the best end use.  During our fire wood gathering we find unique pieces of wood that should be made into something much better than simply burning.  Some of these unique pieces end up being made into these beautiful pens.  Over the years we have received wood from other sources, but our main focus continues to be to source wood from "PEI grown trees".

Scroll through the photos below to learn more about the process and the pens!

L. M. Montgomery

The L. M. Montgomery pens made from wood recovered from an apple tree that has a strong connection to Lucy Maud Montgomery’s childhood homestead.

L.M. Montgomery was raised by her grandparents, Alexander and Lucy Macneill in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island (PEI).  She lived there from 1876 until 1911 and this is where she wrote her novel, Anne of Green Gables. 

The apple tree grew up in the center of where the kitchen of the home was located. In early September 2019, the remnants of Hurricane Dorian hit PEI and toppled the apple tree.

The wood from the tree was saved and it is from this tree that I am fortunate to be able to create these pens.  It is very fitting, that the tree that grew on the very spot where L.M. Montgomery penned her timeless novel has now been turned into pens.   There will be a limited number of pens  made from this tree and each one will be numbered as sold.   It is my hope that if you receive one, you will cherish it for a lifetime.

Most pens are made from two "turning squares". We try to keep them in pairs when ever possible. These blanks will be bored and have a metal tube glued into the center before they are turned on a lathe.
