@Eric Rorabaugh : Just saw these. What a great deal! Still have one or two boxes left?
I'd like to claim one and send it to a buddy who is fairly new to turning and has begun turning finials and such for Christmas ornaments.
I would send you the PayPal, and give you his address to ship the Box.
Hoping it could be a surprise! He's known on here as "carbonleg" but don't want to call him out yet. Do a search for his intro.
Thanks!

Howdy! Well, I'm not that particular, and I'm not necessarily fishing for (almost) free wood.
If you're assembling one for this purpose, the size isn't critical (not needing actual pen blanks), and harder wood likely make for better finials than softer woods. No big hurry. Just might help clear out some space in your workshop...

Hi Eric:
I've contacted my buddy about these. As it turns out, he prefers to make finials and such from pieces closer to 2" square rather then the standard 1" pen blank.
When next you cut blanks of harder(-er) wood, I'll encourage you to leave them closer to 2" square, and I would happily relieve your stockroom of them. :-)
Thank you again for caring!
--JB
