This type of wood is well known for its working characteristics and colours, and while many types of pen blanks can be made from it, this listing is all about heavy-duty knots, I cut the blanks so that I would get as much as the knot in the blank, they were cut longways through the large knots and this was the result.  Oh boy, they are heavy blanks, this type of tree produces the most stable tree knots I've seen and these won't disappoint.

I suggest finishing it with a natural polishing finish, CA or varnish coatings are not advised due to the resins within the knots nature.

This is another of the tree species that I have seen plenty around but never one that required to be cut/removed, etc.,  until I found this firewood processing plant where most of the tree working companies around here take their logs too for disposal free of charge and the plant owner cuts and splits it into firewood.

There has been a number of new tree species that I manage to buy/salvage from becoming firewood from this place so, a great source of woods for me now that I no longer can do the tree work myself.

Norfolk Pine trees are not native to Australian, medium to soft density with the natural colours that are most pleasant and the wood is in general, an easy wood to work with.

I have wrote a story about this new firewood place that, I already got many tonnes of wood and many more will be purchased in the near future, I never seem to have too much wood...!

These stories are wrote in a forum called IAP (International association of Penturners) based in the USA, I'm an active member there and also a vendor, please see here for the stories.

 

Thank you for visiting...!
