Also known as broadleaf maple or Oregon maple, big leaf maple is light reddish-brown and fine grained. Pen blanks are beautifully figured and stabilized with resin to ensure smooth turning and a finished product that can be polished to a gleaming finish.
The characteristic tan color with darker brown patterns intermixed make big leaf maple an attractive choice for pen turning. Your turned result will look good with a variety of pen hardware finishes (sold separately). Blanks are approximately 3/4" square x 5" long.
