2 blanks made of REAL popcorn kernels cast in clear resin. Kernels turn easily, but will need to be stabilized with some thin CA as they're turned down.

Blanks measure 7/8" square x 5 1/2" long.

$10 each + $8 flat rate shipping, or...
Buy both for $25 and shipping is on me.

How about a pic after turning?
My apologies, I forgot to attach that picture!😂

Was is a Vertex Click I made a while back from one of the blanks. I back-painted the inside of the hole black, rather than just painting the tube, so there were no glue splotches visible through the resin. Finished it with 5 coats of Glu-Boost.
While I was very happy with the end result...I do think it the blank would have looked even better on a kit with a greater wall thicknes to really show the depth in these blanks.

I think Sierras are a good way to go. Maybe even try a "Sierra Vista" which has the same overall dimensions as a standard Sierra, but uses a 3/8" tube, leaving more meat on the barrel.
