Buckeye Burl is such a beautiful wood….very difficult to find good pieces….lots of voids, cracks and soft spots.

Did you have to stabilize? Ive had some that required almost a whole tube of super glue to keep them stabile enough to turn.

You picked the right kit too…black titanium sets off the dark parts of the burl…and gives good emphasis…

I too have both a pen and a pencil I made in Buckeye Burl for my own use. (I get a lot of comments and requests from folks seeing me use them).

This particular blank I got from Woodcraft and it was already stabilized. I have recently bought some on eBay that was dried but not stabilized. I bought some Minwax Wood Hardener and did a few blanks already. I tried turning 1 of them and had a serious blowout, but not while turning it. It happened during the polishing process, part of the paper towel snagged a tiny cracked and ripped it all apart. I think the hardener helped, some at least.

I’ll make another Buckeye Burl here soon with 1 of the other blanks I stabilized.

Glad you all are liking this pen so far. Thanks!
