Hey all!

Looking for a very cool pink maple/buckeye/box elder burl blank, 6". Making a Peace/love/faith pen for my mother-in-law. PSI and Ebay last choices. PSI is a roll of the dice on actual color and patterns, nothing I like on eb. Will buy more than one to make it worth your while or if you 3 or 4 sitting in your, "now what" pile on the bench.
:deal::popcorn:
Thank you.
~Mo

Mo, I will have some dyed Boxelder Burl blanks with pink in them, probably in a week or two. Won't likely be solid pink, but double dyed - probably pink with some purple. (I've already got the first color done, with no extra material on hand, so it's a little late to go back and make a just pink blank.)

So, if you can wait a week or two, I may have something that could meet your needs.

I am a very patient man...I bought some double dyed from PSI that was supposed to be Pink and Blue, came out mostly blue with purple to magenta, no pink. LOL They will make nice pens, but I am hoping to get something with more pink in it.

Pink with some purple sounds pretty sexy, so happy to wait. If you don't have plans or takers already lined up, I could use 4. I don't buy singles or doubles anymore. If I buy one I will blow it apart, if I buy two, one is always prettier than the other and I feel guilty about sending out the lower quality because I want to keep the better one. :punish::redcard::rofl:

BTW, Mo, here's about what kind of pink my blanks will be. This is a blank I had made and sold previously - this one was maple w/ some spalt and curl.

And, yeah, I should have several blanks available. I'll give you first dibs on the pink blanks when I have them done and post them for sale!

Oh yeah, that will definitely be awesome if it is close to that when done, the purple will blend nicely with it!

I was the one who bought this blank and it was awesome! People loved the pens I made with them so much that I had to make more pink blanks for myself. So with that said, I do have a few pink blanks available but the pink and purple ones Stan plans on making sounds pretty cool.

Barb, I will be waiting for Matt's blanks, but if you would post a pic and let me know the cost, I am building up stock and have a couple more pink pens to make for some of my office ladies. :good2:

Dang it! That's what I get for going by memory, which is shot, rather than looking at Sprung's name again. In my defense, Matt and Stan are the two that I've bought the most stabilized blanks from before I started stabilizing myself. :)

Anyway, each blank is at least 7/8 x 7/8 x 5 15/16 minimum. They are spalted maple and I would like $7 each if that's acceptable. I sanded and lightly spray lacquered 3 sides. I made the bottle stopper for a customer from the same batch of blanks so you'll know what it could look like.

@Barb - I've been called worse names! :sarcastic:

At least the wrong name I got called by was someone respectable and good! :sarcastic:

@Diver Temple - Check here for some pink from me. I thought I had some Boxelder Burl that would become pink, but I was wrong - but I do have some other nice stuff that's got some pink! I gave you first dibs on what's posted in the thread to make sure you can get what you might want.
