Note: Pen blank sizes are 3/4" square and 5" to 6" long unless noted otherwise. (Most are 3/4" with some 5/8 and 7/8) We don't sell sizes under 5/8" unless specifically marked.  Some pieces shrink when drying and could result in sizes being 1/32 of an inch less then noted sizes. Order larger sizes if this is an issue. (like 1x1x12's instead of pen blanks) Email with any ?
