Default Agerita

This is a lot of Agerita 7 blanks. It is a SMALL holly that grows localy. I was recently on a job where I was able gather quite a bit. All of these are branches from near the base of the shrub. This represents the best of what I have, most likely the top 5%. I pulled out what I would keep and split it down the middle. The smallest one in this lot is 9/10ths of an inch in diameter. I may have to shorten them to fit them in a box. They will be at least 5 inches long. The blanks are $3.00 ea for 7 of them and $5.00 for shipping $26.00 total. I will fill any gaps with smaller blanks that I have cut. The rest is almost useless, very small diameter (maybe a slimline) some of it can be used as accents but most is too small for much of anything. A lot of it checked in epic ways even with anchorseal. This was my first harvesting and next time maybe my vaccume chamber will be ready. Anything useable will be offered in time. The blanks do have some small radial checks but nothing a cut with a bandsaw will not hide. I fill them with black epoxy instead of repairing them. These vary in color between the pens pictured. The Atlas is actualy darker yellow, about like margerine butter. The yellow color will not fade in time if anything it deepens. I have made natural edge pens with similar blanks that were painted black then turned. The Euro was about 2 yrs old when it was photographed. If you have any questions PM me. I am confident that this is a fair deal alot of work went in to these blanks. The leaves have very pointy points I feel like a pin cushion.

Quite effective way to present those blanks, its natural/raw condition is not seem very often and certainly not small diameter branches like that.

I find them also very interesting and I should thing in do the same thing with some of my smaller stuff, instead of trying to clean them up into a clean square shape.

Well done...!

There are not many ways to present this stuff. The only part that gets big enough to saw is the roots, but those usualy become bowls instead.
