This is a really good idea!Very nice . Too bad some of those pleasant smells we encounter in some woods don`t last . Might consider wrapping a half blank in AL foil and giving it to the recipient to show them the way it was .
Haven`t turned mulberry for years . Will dig some out and try again .
This came from a "box of blocks" from woodturnerscatalog. Most of the pieces are perfect bowl blanks usually domestic hardwoods. I was excited to see this in there even though it had a hairline crack running through. I didn't want to risk it cracking further while turning so i made blanks out of it.Nice looking pen. Where did you get the mulberry?
