Topic tags/keywords: pen blanks cutoffs small wood cheap

Hey all,

I am cleaning up my wood supply and I have a LOT of cut offs that are perfect for pen blanks or other small turning projects. A huge assortment of woods, mostly in the realm of maple, walnut, cherry, ipé, mahogany. May include other types too.

I would rather it get used than burned or tossed in the trash so I am willing to ship some flat-rate boxes to anybody who is willing to cover the shipping cost. If you need them pre-cut let me know otherwise you will get an assortment and I trust you can deal with it. :) If there’s something you’re specifically wanting I can try to fill your box with more of that.

Wow, that’s a generous offer! I’d love to get in on that! No particular preference for species, I guess the more hard to find woods, but anything would be appreciated. On the larger side of the cutoffs if it’s possible, but again whatever fits the box will make me smile. E-mail is easier for me, just let me know what I owe ya to get it to TN and I’ll get the money out. Thanks again, that’s really a great offer.

I received two boxes, so far made my first attempt at an end grain cutting board, and a couple of pens. Very useful scraps. Thanks again—-
