Price is per blank. The blanks shown are representative of the blank you will receive but are not necessarily the exact blank you will receive.

Blanks measure 3/4"+ x 5"+.

Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a set of limited-edition Christmas 2022 blanks that will only be made until December 16th, 2022. Any blanks on the shelf after that date will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run.

Tori had been playing around with casting this crinkle material. She decided this combination of colors and crinkle material was perfect to introduce it to you all as part of our Christmas 2022 Limited Edition line. She combined a silver and opal crinkle cut paper shred with mother of pearl confetti and glitter to give you the perfect “storm” of a blank. This blank is highly transparent, and we highly recommend painting the tube or inside of the blank for tubed kits.

When turning, we advise to periodically stop the lathe to check the blank for small pits or pockets created by the paper shred, so you don’t accidentally blow the blank off then lathe if it catches. (See Example Photo)

Dimensions: 3/4"+ square by 5"+ long -- 19mm x 130mm
Material: Alumilite
Base Colors: Clear
Glitter: Mother of Pearl
Additional Add-Ins: Mother of Pearl Confetti, Opal/Silver Crinkle Cut Paper Shred
Transparency: Very High
Each barrel was finished with a few coats of UltraThin CA Glue and sanded through 12000 grit.

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 don’t use a CA Finish (we use a few coats of Super Thin), you can 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 Swirl Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. Comments, compliments for Tori, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated and help us do our job better.
