For 200 years, Tulip Poplars planted by Thomas Jefferson stood sentinel by Monticello’s west lawn portico. Then, in 2008 and 2011, the enormous trees succumbed to age and illness and were taken down. Kirk McCauley is one of several local artisans The Thomas Jefferson Foundation has entrusted to honor their beauty and historic significance. He pursues his passion for hand turned wood artwork in North Garden Virginia, and is a member of the Central Virginia Woodturners and American Association of Woodturners.

Wood from these majestic trees has been used to create this handsome letter opener. (Jefferson is estimated to have written 19,000 letters and received even more.) The polished brass knife has a handle of smoothly polished poplar wood with a decorative brass accent on top. Each handmade piece is truly one-of-a-kind. 7"l.
