    Cheap Pen Blanks

    Picked this gun stock up at last weekends Cranbrook B.C. gun show for $5.00.
    Should result in 15-20 Bolt Action and Lever Action pen blanks.

    Yes, a beautifl hunk of wood. And reinforces my slogan: There is no such thing as scrap wood. That will make some beautiful pens.

    good idea, 5 bucks for a stock someone doesn't need and it turns into 15 blanks of nicely figured wood. Very nice indeed.

    Very nice. I know already the pens you make out of it will be great. Was there a flaw in the stock preventing it from being used on a gun?

    Vaughn,
    The stock had a crack and could not be safely used,

    Thanks, Les. That's what I was suspecting.
