HempWood Slab

Note from Ed: - HempWood is NOT for the beginner! Sharp tools and a steady hand will result in an outstanding pen, but I have “blown up” several in the learning process. One suggestion that has worked for me is to drill with a brad-point bit at fairly high RPM (I use 2000). Also, be sure the blank is mounted firmly—any vibration makes the process much more difficult.

An online tutorial from another source shows turning the blank using a pneumatic disk sander (When all else fails, cheat!!) :) :) 

Slab measures 7/8" strong x 5 1/2"., and are priced per each. Non-Stabilized. 

Use for pen blanks or flatwork
