Gary -- I am a fish when it comes to wood -- E-mail me the address and I will get a check out ==

(and pieces that are a little off for pen making make great tool handles and small chisel handles.....)

IF you get more ready. Please put me at the top of the list. I turned several pens this week and am VERY low on pen blanks. I only have a few Cocobolo, some Ebony, and some Walnut left in my "reserve".

Got my wood today, thanks Gary! [:)]

A few of the bundles had seperated, perhaps to help pack it better, so I could use your help with the one remaining bundle I haven't figured out yet. I have 9 pcs in one set and 5 pcs in the other, and one or both most be Apple. Actually, the 5 pcs look like the Apple you have pictured above. So my question is, what are the other 9 pcs. I'd assume Apple, but they are lighter in color and really don't look like the same wood (to this untrained eye). Gary, I'm not complaining, I'm just asking for a little help in the ID. Thanks,

Mine came today, too.

No complaints here. Just curious about should I worry about any prep before turning? I.E. should I try to treat the wood before turning?

Ron ---I had a little battle getting all the blanks to fit.
You have two woods that look somewhat alike-----the Apple and Cherry--
the Cherry is reaaly Wild black Cherry--thats what they call it around here-----it will have some dark grain to it----the apple is several years old it will have a very even red color.
Hope this helps

Gary,
Let me try to re-phrase my question: The offering is for 10 blanks of 10 species plus 2 BOW. I have 10 blanks of 9 species and 2 BOW accounted for. What I have left to figure out is the remaining species; which I know is Apple, and that 5 are Apple 'cause they match the picture, and like you said, they have a red color to them. So on one hand, I'm short on Apple, but on the other I have 9 pcs I can't identify, so in the end you gave me a better deal (thanks!) and like I said, I'm not complaining, just trying to figure it all out. :-)

The extra 9 are light colored with little grain and irregularly cut (unlike the others) if that might ring a bell. They have the same size and look similar to the yellow poplar but without the yellow. Unfortunately I'm away from them now, otherwise I'd have included a picture.

Since I'm short on apple, these could be apple but maybe heartwood or something?? I have no idea. Or did you run out of apple and substitute with something else?

Thanks so much,
