XF Figured Striped Desert Ironwood Pen Blank - 3/4”

INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). These clean and defect free blanks incorporate mostly warm golden brown colors with red undertones and some rich Cappuccino shades which will range in intensity and diversity from blank to blank. Desert Ironwood takes an amazingly high natural polish that is glass-like and unequalled. Turning it requires an intermediate level of skill due to its density and blunting effect on tools. For best results, keep tools sharp and cut slowly. The natural oils in the wood allow it to turn fairly easily and yield a result that is matchless! Skill level: Advanced.
