INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). Pacific Yew is a dense wood that turns well and takes a buttery smooth, high natural polish. Rich orange color with a tint of red yields beautiful pens. Contrasting white sapwood is present in some blanks.

It is very similar in stature, wood color and density to an exotic species you would expect in Brazil but not Oregon! Difficulty: Beginner.
