i just got suckered into buying 300 pen blanks, i dont have a wood lathe but they were only $50, i was going to buy like 20 to use for small handles and stuff like that and i bought some other stuff from him to, then he mentioned he had a box of 150 for only 50 and i said no thanks then he doubled the offer so i couldnt refuse, there are all kinds of wood, about 45-50 different kinds.
now heres the thing, i dont know what im going to build with them? i was thinking about making some small endgrain cutting boards, and some small boxes but other than that i dont have any ideas, can you help me out?
and one more thing is it a good idea to make an counter top pot cooler thing, the things that when you take a pot of the stove to set it on that insead of the counter or will it kinda burn the wood, and what would i finish something like that with?
