I did a couple batches of pen blanks in my stablizing pot yesterday. This pile has some very spalted (rotten?) Red Bud but is mostly maple. About 3/4 of the maple are spalted and should make some pretty pens. When finished I'll have about triple what is shown here. Seems my stable solution was just right for these. There is no formula or recipe for making the solution, as far as I know. I'll be offering most of these for sale here and on a couple penturning forums when done.
