Popular Collection Bocote 3 in. x 3 in. x 12 in. Spindle Blank

Added June 20, 2019 by Owen

3x3x12 Bocote

"The piece I recurved was rough cut badly in need of a planer or jointer to make it usable. It was coated with wax which made it difficult to work with. After planning to bring it square it was beautiful"

Dragon Scales Pen Inlay Kit

Added June 18, 2019 by James Schrum

Dragon Scale Blank

"This blank was a challange but worth doing. My first batch of epoxy did not work out drying in cup, it was trying to drip out of the holes while truning the blanks to fill. I used 1/2 the amount of all materials and that worked best for me. I saved one and turned the blanks close to fit,and was glad I did. I had a air pocket in 3 of the holes, 1 large and two small ones, the last cup filled them fine. The wife loves her new pen. Takes more time but worth doing."

Apple Harvest Short Grain 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. x 5 in. Pen Blank

Added June 18, 2019 by Glenn D

Really great-looking pen - sold in minutes

"As the instructions note, you must be very patient with this product to get it right. This is the sixth pen I've ever turned, and while it is not rated for a novice, please take note that sharp tools, a lot of thin CA glue and accelerator, and a lot more patience will get you an amazing result. Drill slowly, turn slower, and stop often to check your progress - more so than you would any other project. The result is absolutely worthwhile. I recommend the four-pack, i had no trouble with the first set of long- and short-grain versions. Knock on wood for the next two (haha)!"

Stabilized Colored Green Box Elder 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. x 5 in. Pen Blank

Added June 15, 2019 by Chris

EXCEPTIONAL

"This is my “go to” piece when I want highly figured, predominately green wood - like for the Celtic series. Some imperfections seem to appear on every piece, lending itself to CA finishes to fill pits, but some are so minor a good sanding and friction polish do well. Pic is of a piece done with EEE Ultra Shine Cut ‘n Wax, with four coats of Doctor’s Woodshop Pens Plus friction Polish."

POPS

"This wood can really pop a pen. Takes the CA finish very well and really brings out the figure. Every piece I have obtained from PSI of this has met or exceeded expectations. Finished very well with cutting wax and friction oil too ... just depends upon the “depth” you want. Pic is a Majestic w/ 12 coats of CA (4 thin, 8 medium)."

Premium Stabilized Spalted Tiger Oak Burl 5 in. x 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. Pen Blank from Barry Gross

Added June 13, 2019 by Eric

Excellent Looking Finish

"The stabilized spalted tiger oak burl turns and cuts really easy on the Lathe, and works well in the hands of a beginner or pro pen maker. I kept my tools really sharp and was able to cut this wood down to size with-in 10 minutes without any splitting. It sanded down perfectly using sandpaper grits; 150, 240, 320, 400 and 600. It was as smooth as butter and finished off with a Stickfast CA glue, then used abranet abrasive, 400 Grit and then put the finishing touches with Stick Fast 291-2 CA Polish Gloss."

Texas Flag 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. x 5 in. Pen Blank

Added May 29, 2019 by Robert

Bob

"Beautiful when turned and polished, but comes at a price. Blowouts while drilling are common. Much caution, slow drilling and strong sacrificial backing is needed for the drilling phase. Allowing the bit to cool is helpful. Also, when turning a VERY light touch and VERY sharp tools are both absolutely necessary. This material is VERY brittle. Had some quality control issues with a couple of deformed stars, white bleeding into the red and vise versa. All this said, I started sanding earlier than usual with 1500 grit micro mesh, then progressed to 12000 micro mesh and finished with One-Step. My success rate is about 50% and thus I would rate it as a three or possibly two star product except that this is a beautiful flag image when finished and a real prize for any Texan. I would recommend this only to a very experienced turner."
