Everything we make is personally crafted by Martin Schermerhorn, in his workshop, close to the Claremont Colleges of California. Samples of Burl Woods Used in Making Fountain Pens and Rollerball Pens and Pencils

He starts off selecting the wood

The wood he most often uses is Maple Burl (Acer macrophyllum),or box elder burl (Acer negundo). These both have has swirly unpredictable patterns of grain.

Maple Burl uses the heart wood is the area under the clip in the wood. Pens made with Maple Burl are desirable because of these swilrling lines. This lovely wood grows in British Columbia,Custom Made Fountain Pen Washington, Oregon and some places in California. Burls have the most fascinating grain of all woods which makes them the most sought after of all pens. It is a delight to hold, smooth and form fitting to the hand.

Box elder burl, also known as ash-leafed maple and Manitoba maple is a member of the maple family.
The fungus-causes coloring present in some trees makes box elder prized for wood projects.

Schermerhorn personally selects the most beautiful woods he can find, then sands the wood in 7 steps. Afterwards he adds 2 coats of sealer, then 3 coats of a Special Turning Polish. This results in a beautiful durable finish. The hi-gloss finish is hand rubbed and massaged into the wood. This brings forth a deep luster which is absolutely beautiful.
