Our favourite timber to turn into pens are those with a story woven within them. If you missed Story Woods - Part 1 you can catch it here and you can find our current pens with a story here. Now let me tell you about Harold's armchair.
Harold from Tumbulgum, lived to be 100 years of age. He was a distinguished gentlemen who was born on the 11/11/1911, and the tale passed down from family historians declare he was born at 11 o’clock. Harold was a respected and successful cane farmer in the Tweed District, who loved to watch the cricket from his armchair and grew cheekier with age. When Harold died, this beloved recliner was given to grandson Brad (Co-founder of Veridian Pen Studio) whose daughter Natalia (Harold’s great granddaughter), claimed the armchair as her own. It was Natalia’s special place to read, sketch and cuddle her cat until the armchair broke and was deemed irreparable. We have salvaged a very limited amount of timber from Harold’s recliner chair available to turn into custom pens, pencils and letter openers.
