Hey Guys, this page is devoted only to pen blanks. Species will be in random order as I'm adding or deleting sold lots. Hope you see a few you can use.

Found a great (and expensive) slab of old growth redwood lace burl. If you never could quite figure what lace really looks like....see below. Will be making some pen blanks, knife scales and gun grips out of this wood. Best lace I've ever had.

Got 'em broke down into some bite sized pieces below.

Below is a couple of bigleaf maple cluster burl slabs. They used to be one log....ripped in the middle now with a chunk taken off of the one on the "gurney".......my own primitive little operating room. Cluster burl differs somewhat from root burl. Root burl generally has a more uniform burl that may compose the whole root ball. Cluster burl tends to taper as it gets closer to the center of the log.....sort of like an ice cream cone.... The pen blanks listed below will have good figure and color.......you may recognize some spalting in these logs that shows up in the blanks. The MPC is my designation for this burl........maplepencluster.....vs...MP for my regular maple burl...maplepens

Maple cluster burl pen made by penmaker Dan Masshardt. This pen was made from blanks similar to the below. Look for another pen made by Dan way down at the bottom of the page. Old growth redwood lace burl...beautiful.
