Adrienne is a modern pencil holder that I hand turned from spalted maple wood responsibly sourced here in Central Kentucky.
Spalting occurs when the maple wood is allowed to begin initial stages of decay and then subsequently dried to prevent further decay. The partial decay is called spalting and gives the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks where fungus began to attack the wood.
This modern pencil holder measures 4-1/16″ tall and 2-3/4″ wide at the base with an opening of 1-1/2″. The depth of the cup is right around 3-3/8″. I finished the wood with high friction polish to bring out the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood.
Additionally, I include care instructions with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
