Called “The Old-Timer”, the wood to make this pen came from a old barn in central Ohio built in the mid-1800s.  American Chestnut suffered a blight that wiped out all chestnut trees in the US.  Still grown today from the stumps of long-gone trees, chestnut rarely grows more than a few inches in diameter before succumbing to the disease.  The chestnut this was cut from was from a 14 inches plank, dating it prior to turn of the 20th century.
