Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition 4th of July 2021 blank that will only be available June 9th - July 9th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after July 9th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks are extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run (fingers crossed).

What can be more exciting than celebrating the birth of our amazing nation with three fantastic red, white, and blue blanks for us blank enthusiasts? Tori had fun finding just the right glitter to bring these blanks to you for a glittertastic 4th of July Limited Edition run of these blanks.

The Electric Americana Blanks have three chunky glitter colors: red, blue, and silver that are made up of hexagons (large and small) and small dots. Because of the size of the glitter, there will be small tear outs, please turn slowly and use sharp tools. Light, easy cuts are recommended. This blank is worth going slow as you can see in the pictures below. As the name suggests, this blank will be very electric for your projects!

The glitter has been cast in a clear alumilite base. The blanks may look solid in the photos; but they are very clear and when turned to the thinner dimensions of a finished pen, you will definitely notice. Because of this, we recommend painting the interior of the blank after drilling. You can paint the inside of the blank any color you want. The color you choose will really impact the final appearance though.

Our Glitter Alumilite blanks have that butter-smooth turn that you've come to expect from Alumilite, however the glitter does tend to make a mess. Expect to find glitter for a while after you turn. When finishing the Glitter blank, we've found that using a CA finish has given us the smoothest finish. If you donít use a CA Finish (we use a few coats of Ultra Thin), you might be able to feel the slightest texture of the glitter on the surface of your turned blank.

Small voids in any Glitter blanks are to be expected. We put a lot of glitter in these blanks and some air bubbles and small tear-outs will occur when turning. We recommend using medium viscosity CA glue to fill these voids while the lathe is turned off. Be absolutely sure the CA glue has FULLY cured before you turn the lathe back on.

These Glitter Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. We are starting small and would love any comments, compliments, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc.
