    Nice cache of Coco you have. There are tons of sites out there that sell exotic bowl blanks.
    Yours would probably retail for about $200.00 each.
    Cut into pen blanks, you might be able to double that figure.

    Around here, cocobolo goes for $35-40/bf, if I remember from the last time I went to the wood store.

    i wasn't sure what i was going to do with it, but i couldn't resist the price(about 12 yrs ago) when i bought it. originally it was one piece, and it sat in the store for over a year. finally the guy asked me if i would take it at $65, i said ok, but only on one condition, that he cut it into more managable pieces.
