 We have a large range of Timber and Acrylic pen blanks to choose from, with both local and imported timbers.

Quick Tip

If you are having problems with the bottom of the blank cracking or splitting when you drill, try cutting the blank just 5mm longer and then stop drilling 5mm before the end.  This is easy to do if you have a "Stop setting" on your drill press.  You should make sure you drill only 5 or so millimeters with each plunge of the drill.  This is especially important with acrylics.  The other technique we use is to hold a vacuum nozzle near the drill and suck out all of the waste material each time you lift the drill up.

The final step is to then use the band saw to cut off the last 5mm of material to reveal the hole for the tube.
