Pen Blanks for TurningCustom stabilized wood Hybrid Pen Blanks, Wood Blanks For Pens. Handmade pen blanks poured on Aug 3rd, 2020.
Wood is big leaf maple and was stabilized using Cactus Juice stabilization resin and a vacuum chamber before casting.
Cast with Royal Palm resin and eye candy pigments. Moonstone added to the batch for sparkles. These look great! A very deep pearly red with hints if purple all the way through. 60psi in the pressure pot for 24 hours to ensure the best quality. With the stabilizing and pressure pot used these should be great blanks to turn! Pics misted with water to show the colors better.
Just under 6" long, these blanks are slightly thinner than what I normally pour due to some shrinkage of the resin during curing. They are about 5/8" instead if the normal 7/8" I usually cut. But to ensure these slightly thinner hybrids will work for you,I placed cigar pen tubes on them in the photos. Should work just fine if you carefully drill. Please see photos!
These will make absolutely beautiful wood turned pens and can be turned then polished with micromesh, and buffed with a polish. For an even shinier finish, you can apply CA after turning and micromesh that to a glass-like finish.
