About my work

Hello. I’m Andy Millar and my passion in life is turning wood. I enjoy nothing more than spending hours in my workshop turning pieces of wood into useful works of art.

As a a crew member with an international airline, travelling far and wide, I began to search out interesting and unusual types of wood and brought back samples to work with. I found several that lend themselves naturally to this type of work and have perfected ways of revealing their inner beauty.

My most popular creations are pens as they are individual and thoughtful gifts that can be used every day. I also craft perfume atomisers, magnifying glasses and paperweights. If you don’t see exactly what you want, I can make any of these objects in your choice of style and material.

You can choose from a collection of woods and other materials and match it to a style of pen or other item to create a truly individual piece. There is also a variety of clips available to compose the perfect pen that reflects the personality of its owner.

Materials

Spalted English Beech

Common Beech (fagus sylvatica) is a deciduous tree native to southern England and South Wales. It's very popular with wood turners and is suitable for furniture as well as delicate items. The grain in beech is, naturally, a pale tan colour and has a fine tight grain. Spalting is caused by fungi that attacks the drying wood and creates a marble-like pattern such that no two pieces of timber are exactly the same, producing a striking contrast throughout the piece.

Pink Ivory

Pink Ivory (berchemia zeyheri) originates in Southern Africa and occasionally features in local folklore as a “royal tree”. Notable for its range in colour, from pale brownish pink to vibrant, deep, reds and pinks, the grain is typically straight and even in texture but frequently shows up a swirly “fiddleback” pattern, the kind sought after by stringed instrument makers. Another durable and tactile timber, it turns and finishes well.

English Walnut

English Walnut (juglans regia) with its distinctive straight, regular grain and deep lustre is generally considered to be one of the most attractive timbers. It is often to be found in delicate, high quality work such as cabinetry, gun-stocks, panelling, inlay and veneers, small carved and turned items and is ideal for my pen and other personal designs. In the wild it is under some threat; cultivated trees form the basis for today's commercial stocks.

English Box

Common Box (buxus sempervirens) is ideal for smaller scale, turned wood creations like mine, given the tree's comparatively small size. It works well in delicate carvings, chess pieces, woodwind instruments and furniture details like cabinet or drawer handles. With a straight grain and fine, even texture the wood colour is a uniform light cream when newly worked but it can darken and mellow with exposure to light over time - a natural characteristic of the timber.

Corian ®

Corian® will be familiar to many people from the worktops in their kitchens and counters used in shops and other commercial premises. It is the waste from this solid-surface industry that forms my stock and that really appeals to me in my values over recycling. A proprietary blend of minerals and acrylic, which creates a stone-like material, it comes in over 100 standard colours and I am happy to work with customers' own left-overs to fashion a personalised item.

English Laburnum

Laburnum (laburnum anagyroides) is commonly found right across Europe in good sustainable stocks and, as a smaller tree, is ideal for use in delicate and small turned items. Its colour ranges from a 'burnt orange' hue through to a deep claret-brown; combined with its deep lustre it makes a good visual replacement for ebony. Despite being a little hard and dense, it turns well to produce good looking pen barrels and handles for a range of desk items.

English Oak Burr

Oak (quercus robur) burr (also 'burl') is easily recognised, a growth on a tree in which the grain has developed in a deformed way. Burrs come about because the tree is under some form of stress, by way of physical damage, virus or a fungus. As a result, the burr yields a complex patterned and figured wood that is sought after by artisans to craft oak in a stylish way, Hard wearing, durable and good looking, oak burr features across the range of my products.

English Yew

Common Yew (taxus baccata) is a really interesting wood; known by many for its association with churchayrds. A softwood, it demonstrates all the characteristics of a hardwood; dense and strong it is also highly flexible - hence its use in archery bows. A little like Laburnum, Yew heartwood ranges from orange-brown to darker chestnut or claret hue, with a great natural lustre. It also darkens slightly with age. I find Yew turns well with a uniform finish.

Australian Sheoak

Australian Sheoak (allocasuarina) is not a true oak (quercus) relation but when milled it's easy to see how it was called 'oak' because of the medullary rays that form a lace-like pattern on the sawn surfaces. Mostly pink to reddish brown, with occasional darker brown streaks, the sapwood can lighten to a yellowish brown. Sheoak finishes and turns well and is also a favourite of cabinet makers. A distinctive pen and a great gift for any occasion.

Mexican Bocote

Mexican Bocote (cordia) is a very eye-catching timber that lends itself to a number of uses where appearance means everything: fine furniture, cabinetry, veneers, boat-detailing, stringed instruments, gun-stocks and turned objects like my pens. In the examples below you can see how the grain pattern swirls and forms "eyes" in the timber. Colours darken with age but the work always maintains a good deep lustre for a solid, intriguing, look.

A Word About Sustainability

I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel extensively, both for pleasure and professionally. It's helped me identify new and interesting timbers for my projects but it's also helped me see and understand how fragile the environment can be.

It's clearly important that I pursue my craft responsibly and this starts with simply being aware of the threats to tree species in the wild. There are reliable resources for this guidance.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the world's main authority on the conservation status of species and it publishes its Red List which evaluates the risk to thousands of species and subspecies of animals and plants.

CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species [of Wild Fauna and Flora]) is a treaty, in full force since 1975, to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of the species in the wild.

I do not procure any timber which features in either CITES or the IUCN Red List and I only obtain materials from reputable sources of sustainable supply, mainly cultivated forest timber. Any early specimens I've collected over the years, from recycled sources, which have since been classified as threatened will be used up; but when they're gone - they're gone.

Recycling, generally, features high in my priorities and because my working stock only needs to be small dimension pieces of timber, I source a lot of my raw material from the managed waste of other woodworking processes and industry. In turn I manage my own waste responsibly, some of which finds its way back into my work such as burnishing turned items on a lathe. My use of Corian® stems from the availability of off-cuts from the solid-surface industry – the holes in your sinks!

If you have any questions about my approach to sustainable materials, please contact me through the Get in touch section of this website.

Available Pen Styles

The Executive

STY0001 Zoom

(mouse over for magnified image)

This fountain pen features a German made nib that will give smooth, effortless writing. The cap can be either pushed back on to the post of the pen or left off depending on balance and writing style. The pen can be used with either a cartridge refill or the more traditional pump method as both are supplied. The pen is refilled by simply unscrewing the nib end and removing old cartridge or using the pump.

The Professional

STY0002 Zoom

(mouse over for magnified image)

The Professional twist ballpoint adds a new flair to the smaller type of desk pen. A fine balance gives a superb writing style with a Parker™ type refill which is replaced by slipping the pen apart at the centre; the refill will then slide out. The spring around the nib end must be retained for use with the new refill.

The Slimline

STY0003 Zoom

The pen benefits from a Parker™ style refill which is renewed by unscrewing the nib end and sliding the old refill out. The refill has a spring attached to it which must be removed and placed on the new refill.
