Default Sports Support Sold out, replenished!!

Really helps to have a couple thousand customers perched on the website!! As soon as Brian's sports colors were introduced, they sold out

So, "Fool4Peppers" sent us another, larger batch with a couple new added colors!!

The colors in these blanks are VERY well delineated, which means the blank has to cure more quickly. As a result, they can be a little "chippy". So, to assist you with improving your turning skills, I have made this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rqK-jJTDL8

Watch it, gain some tips and then go here:


As I mention in the video, these are only $5 each and one blank will make two sierra style pens (or many of the other single tube designs)!!

So, this is a very AFFORDABLE way to become a better pen turner.

This week, someone referred to me as an "Expert". While I don't think of myself in those terms, I am VERY confident when I turn a blank. Why? Because I have "blown up" a similar blank dozens of times, so now I know what NOT to do----the only way to get to this point is EXPERIENCE!! Join me!! (it is a very nice feeling to know you CAN turn it, no matter what is put on the lathe)!!

These SportSupport blanks on a sierra will make great pens that cost you about $10. They should sell VERY easily at $40----you can certainly pay for any mistakes with that margin!!!

Get em while they are here!!! Brian can make more!!!

Thanks,
Ed

Well sheesh.. had me all excited.. but no.. I live in Denver and no colors for me. :) I tried making my own, and was only moderately successful. I also looked at the local wood store and they had some of the right orange and blue colors, but they wanted $13 each for them because of the colors. So I will keep perfecting making my own for now. :) :)

I want to see more teams just so I can read the names haha.

Also, are these blanks pearlescent?

Thanks Ed.

Mitch, I have an orange and blue blank planned. Orange is one of the harder colors for me to get just right. Look for them in the near future.

COOL... and I appreciate hearing it is not JUST me having issues with orange. If the experts have difficulties with it, what chance do I have as a beginner. :)

I would not describe them as Pearly, just "perfectly colored"!! I don't think you will have to paint tubes on these.
