REBECCA

REBECCA is a wooden pen cup / pencil holder with a leather base. I used responsibly sourced cherry wood from Fayette County, Kentucky, for the pen cup.

For the leather, I used offcuts, which would otherwise be considered waste. I get these offcuts from a leather & tack shop right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Among other things, the shop is known for handcrafting the halters of a number of Derby horses.

Visible in the cherry wood are traces of underbark, multiple knots, and a beautiful multi-dimensional grain. I hand-carved the rim to create an undulating edge.

This wooden pen cup measures 3-5/8″ tall by 3-3/4″ at its widest point and the opening measures 2″ wide with a depth of approximately 2-7/8″. I finished the wood with high friction polish, which brings out the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood. As always, 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.

Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.
