Product Information:

You’ll see intricate designs emerge as these are turned – swirls, chevrons, arches and stripes. Includes 5 pieces of Burmese Blackwood. We have carefully and selectively cut a small quantity of 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" pen blanks from some of the most exciting wood species that we have ever seen. Expensive yes, but the results will be worth it. Premium exotic species are selected for color and prominent grain and then processed by cutting on an angle to accentuate the grain patterns. You’ll see intricate design emerge as these are turned – swirls, chevrons, arches and stripes. Take care and use sharp tools when machining or turning these 'hard,' diagonally cut exotics.

    Comments about Diagonal Cut Burmese Blackwood Pen Blank 5-Piece :

    These blanks have awsome grain & color. However they rip out very easily. Three blanks now, and they have all blown a chunck out before getting to sanding, even with freshly sharpened tools. I've had better luck using a narrow gouge, which removes less at a time than a wide gouge. Next attemp I'm going to use the band saw to partially round the blank prior to mounting on the lathe. The wood looks like it will take a very good shine, once you get past it ripping out.
