Doing some house cleaning today and came across these Spalted Maple blanks.
I have had them for more than 10 years.
Measure 3/4 x 3/4 x 6 (approx).
If you would like one let me know your name and address and I will send it out.
Just reimburse me for the postage.

Well this morning I decided to turn a pen using the Spalted maple I am giving away.
Holy Cow ... Such a deep rich honey color with tiger striping and the spalting.
You will love it!
I must be crazy to give this stuff away.
For all who requested a blank they will be going out today USPS.
The photos do not show the true depth and beauty of this wood.

If you would rather send me back a blank as a trade than send money that would be fine!
I'm doing this to share not to make money

Wow - a week earlier and you could have entered that pen in the Pretty Wood Pen Contest! Nice of you to share the blanks. I‘ll look for a blank you might like in return, but I’m not sure I have one as pretty. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Thanks for doing this William and I'd love one.

I can only hope my pen turns out close to yours!

Beautiful pen. The word I would use for your give away is magnanimous! Thank you. With the one you are sending me I'm going to make a modified slimline (without center band) to maximize the amount of wood showing. I can't wait!!!

Turning blanks have went out to everyone that has requested one.
Look for them next week thru USPS first class mail.

I still have about 4 left to give away.

This wood came from eBay years ago when you could get good wood at a reasonable price.
It is well seasoned and aged and ready to be made into something.
Be sure to use thin CA glue prior to your final turn and after the first sanding to help prevent pitting and strengthen the wood.

Here are the three pens I turned using this wood.

It was on the envelope and the business card inside the envelope.

All blanks have been given away.
There are none left to give away.
Wish there was a way to delete this post or edit the original one.
All Blanks Are gone!.
