Default Auction - Blanks, Blocks, Burls - COMPLETE

AUCTION: Blanks, Blocks, Burls COMPLETE

This auction will start off with a nice box of Blanks, Burls, and Blocks, AND will be sweetened at least a couple times along the way with a few surprises. (Additional items will be listed in the post below this one...)

Here's the basic box (descriptions below):



  • Chonta Quiro Section - 8 1/2" x 3" (D). (Note: I believe the Pith was drilled out, but not positive as it is in old shrinkwrap. The best guess from me is this is from Peru (or possibly another Amazon region. I have not found anything in the available resources, other than "Chonta Quiro" maybe a region in Peru.)
  • Pomelle Sapelle - 3/4" x 10"
  • Pomelle Bubinga - 1 1/8" x 6 3/4"
  • Mystery Burl - Approximately 3" x 4" x 5"
  • Jarrah Burl Block - 2" x 7" x 7"
  • African Blackwood (heartwood/sapwood) - 1 1/2" x 2" x 15"; 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 15"
  • Black Mesquite Block - 3" x 5" x 5"
Some extra pics:

Additional items for this auction:

A Few from Jeff's Stash


Two woods, two hybrid, two plastics. See the description in this post



Custom Chevron Blank Set

Mark James will make the winning bidder a custom Chevron Blank Set. See his description in the post below. THANKS MARK!


Huang Huali Pen Blank

This blank came to Mark James, from OKLAHOMAN, who got it from DCBluesman. I don't have more information than that, other than such blanks have commanded some pretty astronomical prices here over the years. If you search around the site, you can find some discussions. Perhaps Mark can chime in below with more information.
