Hello Fellow Turners!

I just finished these gorgeous sets of Maple Burl Pen Blanks. I cut and stabilized this wood myself. Blues, Pinks, Violets, Reds... There is just a ton of great figure here for some unique pens!

Each set of 3 blanks is $21

Shipping is $5 for one set and $8 for 2 or more sets, CONUS.

Blanks are approximately 3/4 inch square by 5 inches. As with all burl, use sharp tools and fill voids and inclusions as you go!

There are 12 sets, they are in order. Make a claiming post below

Thanks,

Ben

I'll take IMG_9863, IMG_9840 and IMG_9947.

Quick question...do you ever make blanks at 7/8th size? I guess those are usually called "jumbo". I have several larger-sized fountain pen and rollerball kits and I don't think I can safely drill a 3/4" blank (and in one case, I don't even think a 3/4" blank is quite large enough for the bushings anyway.)

Yes, I havent posted some of the Jumbo blanks yet, but since you asked, I guess you get 1st dibs!
2nd and 3rd pictures are Buckeye Burl The rest are Maple Burl -- see attached Maple are $8 per blank, Buckeye are $12 per blank (Sold in sets)
