Pen Blanks for Turning
Custom stabilized wood Hybrid Pen Blanks, Wood Blanks For Pens. Handmade pen blanks poured on July 27st, 2020.
Wood is big leaf maple and was stabilized using a stabilization resin and a vacuum chamber before casting.
Cast with Eddie Stone's resin and Divine Island dye. Moonstone added to the batch to give some glimmer when turned. These look great! A very deep blue 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.
6" long and 7/8" wide and tall. You will probably want to paint your tubes since there is some translucency in the blue. Last pic shows the blanks held up to the sun. You can see a little through them but not much. The blue is very very blue.
The available blanks are adequate size for everything from slimlines up to big fat cigar pens if properly and carefully drilled.
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.
PenBlankSales.com's exclusive Moonstone Blanks™ are made using naturally occurring crushed moonstone, potassium aluminum silicate, these blanks will glisten and shimmer in the light as the moonstone reflects an amazing blue-white sheen.
*As always, we encourage you to paint your tubes or drilled area of the blank to ensure you don't see brass through the turned material, and as always make sure to wear proper eye protection and respirators when working with any materials in your shop.*
