    Does anyone here reconize these pen blanks.

    I'm trying to get my shop better organized before winter so that I can spend more time in it turning pens. I've collected blanks in boxes over the years and I'm just now trying to put them away. I have two different blank types and I do not know what kind of wood they are. I may have gotten them from someone here in a swap or bought them as a "box full of blanks"...I honestly don't remember...unfortunately.
    So...does anyone know what kind of wood blanks these are?

    I'd say their spalted brown wood blanks.

    Spalted mystery wood. I'm positive that is what they are.

    Hackberry may be a good guess for the one group. I Googled it and it does look very similar. Now to figure out what the others are. They have the letters PL. I wonder if it could be Plum????
