Topic tags/keywords: hardwood pen blanks figured black walnut

I can’t seem to make enough small projects to keep up with the “shorts” Have Black Walnut, Ash, Hackberry, White Oak, ERCedar, Elm, Honeylocust, Flamed Boxelder, and some English Walnut. Lots with great figure. I have some pics on my website, www.nativelumber.net If you would like better pics I’d be happy to send them to you.

What do you consider “shorts”? What type of length and widths? And, last of all, How can I get them shipped from Litchfield, NE to Arnolds Park, IA (Cheaply!)?

I believe there is a forum topic going right now in which someone said if it gets stuck in the vacuum hose its a keeper!!! I don’t expect anyone to take the real short stuff, unless they really want it. Anywhere from 6” to 4feet. Mostly somewhere in between and if you don’t want anything under 1ft I can accommodate that, although some of the short short ones have real nice crotch grain. The widths are around 6inches on average. Evidently UPS has flat rate boxes that are fairly reasonable for shipping. Fritz— There is a possibility that I will be coming through your area in the next week or two. PM me if you are interested.

I am interested if you have anything at least 7” wide with a length at least 12”. I also need 1/4 thickness, and if you do not have anything this thick can you resaw it to be this thick. The type of wood does not matter (would prefer a number of different types). message me and we can talk about it.

Richard, I know I had some 1.25”thick, depends on how much it shrank when drying whether I do now. I will dig it out of the stack and let you know. I don’t cut very much boxelder as most anything around here over 12” diameter is hollow through the center.

I would be interested in your “too short” stuff. I am getting into inlay/marquetry and crafting, ( I am making a free standing butterfly right now ) I can resaw the thickness on pieces down to a couple of inches square, so I could use about any size. Let me know what one of those “standard UPS boxes” would cost please. The more different each piece is the better. Any Species of wood.
Thank You Scrappy

http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv5/nativelumber/HL4.jpg I can’t seem to get photo’s to load here so maybe this link will work. I have some full length Black Walnut with great character that did some moving when drying that I am thinking about cutting into shorter, straight pieces. $3.75/sqft?? its dry. Scrappy—I will try and get a price on those shipping boxes tomorrow. Richard- The best I could do is to line the boards back up in the order they were milled, and plane, and laminate them back together. I do have a couple pieces of honeylocust that are thick enough as well as long enough. There should be about 30 pics of different pieces on the photobucket link. If it doens’t work let me know. Thank you everyone for your interest.

Sorry, Saw, my “finance manager” says I have to pass at this time. Really sorry about that, I looking forward to getting my hands on some of that candy stripe for box top inserts. Maybe the next time around. Fritz

Do you still have any white oak shorts? I’m looking for 2” thick, any width, and 36” long.
