Pen Blanks

Cottonwood Burl pen blanks

Cottonwood burl pen blanks. These have been professionally stabilized by impregnating with resin at a very high pressure. Cottonwood burl has a lot of natural empty space once you remove all the water. For that reason, it needs to always be stabilized, and additionally to be filled. We filled with superglue. It is possible there are some small gaps inside we could not reach, you might need to glue those in some cases. Not seen for sale alot because they are quite a bit of trouble to produce. They are very dense and ready to use now.

Koa Pen Blanks

Koa, a type of acacia from Hawaii, is now becoming a rare wood and there is little availability. These pen blanks are technically GG grade or better (GG means figure on at least 2 of 4 sides), but we'll call them figured. They are specially priced and all came from the same board I found behind some other things recently.

Gmelia Burl

Some unusual burls for one time sale. NOTES: The American elm burl has been soaked in superglue which was then sanded off multiple times. You likely will have to glue it more on the inside but we really worked all the glue in we could from the outside. These were so extraordinary for elm I decided to put a couple hours+ additional work into them just to make them nice. We have no more elm like these, nor have I seen any for sale. The Gmelia burl is the last piece we have in the shop, and it is a very nice solid and pretty piece.

Masur Birch 22-34

If a piece shows two figure grades ie: 3A/4A it means that it is in between those grades and the first grade listed is closer to correct. Masur Birch is a highly desired patterned wood from Finland and Belarus mostly. Recent research (2017) has reversed the previous belief that these patterns are caused by beetle attack. Studies have shown that the trees that have these patterns are genetically different from those that don't have patterns. This is a process of natural growth in the tree rather then a response to insect attack. The quality of patterns in these pieces is far above average and required very selective cutting techniques to get this kind of appearance. Notes: There may be a long-term problem getting more, the source country Belarus is in a political crisis.

Koa L to R

Koa is now a rare wood. Pieces of Hawaiian Koa with figure like this are very hard to find for sale anywhere. These are all thin slices and might be a little thicker on one side than the other. The measurements show the smallest thickness area. We have had these for years, and there is no way we can get more stock of the quality you see in most of the pieces shown.

Koa, FIGURED, dried, size: 7/16 ” thick x 5 3/8 x 5 3/8 inches (with the missing corner as seen in photos)
