Default Sunday at the movies--cross grain spalted pen

pen from cross grained spalted wood - YouTube

This week is similar to the black palm a couple weeks ago.

Shameless plug: We HAVE a fair amount of spalted, some is cross cut, so it makes sense to show how to make this into a pen!! So, watch and ask questions here!!!

Enjoy--
Ed

Thanks Ed. Being new, watching you use the gouge and skew is as educational as the rest of the content. all your work is well worth it. Hope your Dad is well.

Ed, once again a good video. Lots of useful information for us noobs. Love that spalted wood they make some great looking pens. I have not tried putting CA inside the blanks yet, but will soon. Thanks.

To join the thread; I wonder if stabilizing would make sense for cross-grain woods? The grain length is less than an inch so you should be able to get full penetration of a hardener easily.

Great video.
Here's mine. While not cross grain, this piece was pretty punky. Stabilizing with thin CA works great.
