Mesquite pen blanks are cut from Mesquite, a VERY hard wood, found in many of the Southwestern states of the USA.


Nominal dimensions: 5"x.75"x.75".


Relatively easy to work with, as long as you keep your tools sharp, it has wonderful grain patterns and contrast, giving it a great finished look in custom turned pens. This wood is hard enough that it prefers to make more of a sawpowder, that a sawdust when using power tools. Redish-brown with lighter color sapwood on some of the blanks
