Alaskan Spalted Birch Has Arrived!

Alaskan Spalted Birch

Just arrived back form the stabilizer is one of my favorite woods, Alaskan Spalted Birch.  Birch is a light wood and these pieces are from Alaska that have started spalting.  These pieces have been stabilized to make it easier to turn and once a finish has been applied to the blank,  the true chatoyance of the wood can be seen.  These are “Eye Candy” to be seen!

Happy Turning – Barry

Short Vacation

Arizona Silhouette is going into our 7th year so it is finally time to actually take some time off.  Well I am only going to take a few days while Lenora will stay at the beach all week.  Arizona Silhouette will be closed for Monday and Tuesday but will open back up on Wednesday.  On Thursday, I will be off to the Washington DC Pen Show and be there for the weekend.  So if you are in the DC area come see me at the DC Pen Show.  Michael will be in the warehouse filling orders and answering the phones on Wednesday. thru Friday.Talk with you later – Happy Turning – Barry

Faux Cigar Kits Have Arrived!

Faux Cigar Pen kits

I want to thank Dale DeHoff for working with Arizona Silhouette on this great Faux Cigar project.  These simple to make pens offer the cigar aficionado a great gift.  The pen blanks are made from highly figured exotic woods and burls.  The kit comes pre-tubed and turned.  All you have to do is some turning, finishing and assembling to have one of these one-of-a-kind pens!
