Not long ago I went to the coast. Specifically the Moro Bay San Simeon area. While I was there I want some driftwood. I was not sure what I was going to do with it, but I wanted some.
I picked up several pieces. A few weeks later I deiced to try and make a pen from the wood. It took several tries as the wood is very fragile. After multiple attempts I did it!
Here are pictures of the wood, several as I was making blanks from them and one of the final product.
