How much would it cost to make pen blanks like these if I provided the tiger curl maple wood? I’ve got plenty of wood, but not enough experience with making & applying decals as nice looking as these. Your got this down to an art.

Hi Karl.
If you supplied the wood and I cut, drilled, supplied the bras Bolt Action tubes, anchored tubes, turned, applied the decals and finished would work out to $14.00 CAD each plus shipping.
How many were you looking at?
I live in Alberta, Canada.

I’m thinking about giving a few pens to some hunter friends that give me a lot of venison each year. Your price for all the work involved, but I‘m now thinking the pens would be more special if I turned them myself. Any chance you might want to trade some decals for some curly wood instead?

Here’s some curly silver maple wood that I was thinking about cutting up for my pen blanks. I could send some of it your way if you open to a trade. Although, you’re in Canada so you may have all the curly maple that you need.
