    Historic Wood

    From time to time I have objects made using historic wood. I need some pens made with the teak from HMS Trincomalee combined with Royal Navy teak decking stored for the Royal Yacht. I have a variety of other products made using historic wood such as keyrings and you can see some of those objects on rasoir.uk I am always looking for ideas. I thought that the top half of the wood wood be the 1820's Trincomalee timber and the bottom half the Royal Yacht - I have condiderable amounts of other material largely metal including thin sheet metal from the Meteor jet and fabric from the Barnes Wallace airship so ideas are always welcome. I would probably put the pen in fabric from hainsworhs which would be the same red fabric as used by the Guards at Waterloo.

    Welcome to the forum mate, there are a few members on here who turn pens from salvaged timber.... especially boats, they seem popular. As to the Meteor material it can always be included as banding or beading or if your really good Celtic knots....

    I am setting up to do some mixed media with my woodturning which includes metalwork. So I can see no reason that with the pieces you have that there will be plenty of things that you can do.

    If you or anybody else thinks they can make the pens I would be pleased to hear. If they can utilise any of my historic metal that would be nice. The email is m.carpenter519@btinternet.com I have a lot of historic material. The Royal Yacht is very sound the Trincomalee teak is a bit more difficult but if anybody wants more detail just let me know. Rasoir.uk shows some of the pieces.
