Fall of 2023 we processed over 1,000 pen blanks! Some are listed for sale separately here for other wood turners and some are exclusively Sarkanys Rising blanks. See below for a list of blanks of all kinds!
Manmade blanks: Acrylic, Inlace Acrylester, Hybrid, Simstone, etc.
Can be made in any color or combinations of colors, more expensive than all but the rarest of wood. Items made with these blanks are truly one of a kind as even blanks from the same pour will be different!
We have processed blanks that are “No Waste Resin” from over pours or pours that didn’t turn out to be what was intended. Photos of these blanks are available upon request.
Other blanks available (again photos upon request) include: Coffee bean, Blue Titanium, Blue Garden, Clouds & Stars, and Silver Roses (single tube pens only).
Natural Blanks: Antler, Horn, & Different Varieties of Wood (See Below)
Not all materials in nature can be turned, but we do have a lot of options including but not limited to:
Acacia, Acacia Mangium, Alder, Bocote, Buckeye Burl (all stabilized, some dyed purple), Canarywood, Cedar, Cherry, Brazilian Ebony, Ironwood, Itauba, Katalox, Ancient Kauri, Hawai’ian Koa, African Mahogany, Honduran Mahogany, Maple, Maple Burl (all stabilized, some dyed purple), Myrtle, Tasmanian Rose Myrtle, Oak, Osage Orange, Padauk, Brazilian Pepperwood (all stabilized), Peroba Rosa, Pink Ivory, Purpleheart, Bolivian Rosewood, Swiss Pear, Tulipwood, Walnut (Black, Claro, & Peruvian), Wenge, & Whiskey Barrel Blanks from Jim Bean, Jack Daniels, Makers Mark, & Wild Turkey.
Our non-wood natural blanks include deer antler & horn at this time.
I also have several “unknown” blanks from estate sales in the area, we have good guesses on type, but cannot confirm for various reasons!
As far as what we can make from them that depends on the imagination! We have quite a few kits on hand for pens, bottle stoppers, coffee scoops, etc. If you see something on the website, we can likely reproduce it. It won’t be an exact copy obviously, but from grilling sets to wedding sets we have the suppliers & the skills!
Our Current Walls of Blanks! We had to expand to a second wall due to processing everything we had in stock!
