    Comments about Buckeye Burl Pen Blank - Natural :

    I've bought a few of these now but only in Woodcraft's store as I like to hand pick my burls. The most incredible piece of Buckeye Burl I've ever seen I bought here. However, it took a long time and many trips to Woodcraft to find. I frequent the store and go through their wood as they get new stuff in. Much of the natural BB I see is plain and cream colored with little contrast or variation. A couple pieces didn't seem to be stabilized, wouldn't polish and didn't cut like any other stabilized piece I've used. I won't order it online and risk getting an ugly piece. It's worth digging and waiting for a good piece to arrive at your local store. Bottom line: Good when its good, not so great when it's not.

    Comments about Buckeye Burl Pen Blank - Natural :

    This is one of my favorite looking blanks for pens. The multi-colored look is fascinating, and the occasional spalting adds additional depth. I get more positive comments about this wood than any other. It does tend to "melt" with high temperature, and will stick to drill bits, so drill slowly and allow time to cool between advances of the drill.
