I would argue that the eucalyptus makes for better handles having turned both for tool handles. Mesquite would be a great plane and I’m doing a jointer next with some of Woodys wood as well. With that said, help Woody clear his scrap bin and get some good stuff. I just built a plane this weekend with Woody’s red eucalyptus. Beautiful stuff!

FYI, I don’t make any money off of this endorsement, just enjoy the stock woody has sold me.

AZWoody,

I have recently started woodturning and am making my mistakes on little stuff (pens, paraffin lamps, teeny bowls, etc). What would be the charges for a small priority mail box or a medium (thicker) priority mail box of a mix of this wood? Or is what I am thinking of too small to fool with?

Thanks,
Iwoodtryharder

I have a mix of some pen blanks already made from some of the pieces I had laying around. Any other sizes you have in mind, in terms of width, pm me and we can go from there. I might have some boxes already here that I can fill to see how much can fit.

If you’re filling a medium sized square box I know 128 pen blanks can fit in it. I did a trade on the wood trade thread and was given 128 packed tight.

Just for anyone’s info.

Thanks. I didn’t think it would be even close to that much.

Have your say...
