Stabilized Birdseye Maple pen blanks - coffee brown
Stabilized and dyed Birdseye Maple pen blanks. Approximate dimensions 3/4" square by 5" long.
Coming from the Sugar Maple tree, this wood forms curls and clusters of pattern resembling a small birds eye, hence the name. The light caramel colour is distinctive of curly maple and the birds eye gives a flash of accent on the radiant light background of the wood. The pattern of knots are developed when a tree is unable to grow a new branch, and absorbs the stem into the body of the wood leaving unique markings and beautiful piece of art.
Easy to drill and turn - we recommend finishing with thin CA glue, abranet, micro mesh and Hut Ultra Gloss for a smooth, high gloss shine.
Some colour variability is to be expected - this is because different blanks have different densities that will affect how the wood absorbs resin. Please note we do not offer refunds for colour variability within the blank or other slight internal imperfections. The blank in the picture has been sanded to show the figuring. Your blanks will be selected at random. The blank in the photograph is representative only.
Price is per blank in Canadian dollars.
