About Pen Blanks

There is nothing quite like the feeling of making something from wood with your own two hands, the smell of sawdust is the sweetest air freshener you know. If you are looking for a smaller project you can do in between the busy-ness of your life, get yourself some pen blanks to work with. These are rectangular blocks you can machine into a beautiful writing instrument. Wood pen blanks are available in many different styles and colors, but hardwoods are the best to work with. One that is particularly beautiful is the Amboyna burl pen blanks. With a swirl of different shades of wood, these pen blanks make especially beautiful gifts. Other beautiful options are Ebony, Redwood, and Teak. No matter your preference, you can find your favorites among the offerings of the reliable sellers on eBay. Fashioning these does require some skill and a deft hand so getting some less rare wood to practice on might be a good idea.
