Stabilized buckeye burl pen blanks double dyed red & violet
Stabilized and double dyed Buckeye burl pen blanks. Blanks measure minimum 3/4" x 3/4" x 5".
Stabilization refers to impregnating soft wood with resin, creating a blank that is no longer weak. Burl is a rare, abnormal growth on a tree that has beautiful swirling figure and eyes and is often used in high end furniture. 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. It is not unusual for buckeye burl to contain small voids. These can be easily filled with CA glue and are not considered defects. 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.
