Custom coolibah red burl and aluminum honeycomb Hybrid Pen Blanks, Wood Blanks For Pens.
Handmade pen blanks poured with Oakbrook casting resin on July 8th, 2020. I used a beautiful teal, blue, bronze and gold pigment powder along with a large piece of figured and two-tone coolibah red burl wood.
The honeycomb was cleaned with vinegar and soaked in acetone to help the resin stick. I turned blank #6 myself to ensure the quality of the blanks before posting here for sale. See photos.
Each Hybrid Pen Blank is at least 5" long and 3/4" square. The color swirls in this are awesome and was achieved by waiting until the resin got to a high temperature before combining colors.
You will need sharp tools and a gentle touch when working with the honeycomb. Even going soft and slow I had a minor blow out on the end that I fixed with CA and some color. I can't be held accountable if you blow up the blank you buy. :). Tip,use sand paper near the ends when you get a little close to the bushings!
Adequate size for everything from slimlines up to big fat cigar pens if properly and carefully drilled. You can paint your tubes but that is completely up to you!
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.
