    I have a few blanks cut and sealed. I can not guarantee anything dry. I have blanks for pen blanks, knife scales, whistles, pot call blanks and duck call blanks. Every size has a different price so if interested please specify size for price. Thanks

    Wondering what the moisture content level is currently since you cut them into dimensional blanks or are they “green”- how are they as a whole holding up as far as minimizing any checks through natural drying process?

    Most are around 12-14% they do hold out fine once sealed

    I am more concerned how they will hold up once I continue to naturally air dry them in a controlled environment to 6 percent moisture content or how will they survive shipping time frame due to sudden lost of internal moisture (cracking, checking, splitting, dimensional stability, etc.)

    They are sealed in open ends so no rapid loss of moisture.

    Paul this is usually some sought after stuff . I think you’d get more interest if you would post the sizes with the prices. If the post doesn’t have prices I for one keep on scrolling. Just trying to help and good luck.

    Thanks for the advice. It is usually sought after. I have too many sizes to post and it’s too hard to post every one. Much easier for me to do it this way. It is only a hobby and not a business so if I only sell a few it’s no big deal. Thanks again for the advice.

    As far as concern for moisture loss in shipping, wrap it nice and tight in Saran Wrap. Several of the guys her do this when shipping wet pieces.

    I can cut any size but rarely cut larger than 1 3/4” unless specified. I do have some 1.5” but most are a bit larger to factor for warpage during drying. Then they are cut to 1.5”

    1 3/4" works for me! Figure out what a padded envelope full of those would cost me. Should be able to get probably 5 wide, by however long will fit in the envelope. Thinkin 10" would be cool if it would fit. Wrap them in saran wrap to keep them nice and tight, they should ship well.

    I agree with @Bean_counter - while I'm not in the market to be buying any wood right now, some prices would be nice. I do the same thing as Mike - if I have to ask or send a PM for pricing, I just scroll on by. And I'm sure we're not the only two. My experience with those who say to ask or PM them for pricing is generally that they are overpriced, they know it, and are trying to sucker someone in. I'm not saying that's the case with you or every instance of the ask for pricing, but it has been my overall experience.

    Wouldn't have to list the pricing for every size of blank, but having the pricing listed for a few common sizes, such as call blanks, pot call blanks, and pen blanks, would give a really good start.

    I need a size to quote a price. They are prices per linear inch.
