Default IKEA Pen Blanks

IKEA had a cutting board with some kinda neat wood in it, 3/4 inch thick. Hmmm $12, should be able to get several blanks...

...40 to be exact and 5 more just a little short. Surely a decent deal, right?

Looks looks like a great deal to me.

And I thought I was cheap! Nice score for wood at a bargain basement price!

Especially worth it if the pens turn out nice!
Please post some results once you've made some. I am really curious.

I have found great cheap wood from cutting boards at Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. Some can make very nice segmented blanks. I typically pay about $3 for a used cutting board.

I don't think I'd be cutting on the glue lines. Cut diagonally and you have segmented blanks.
