OK, I now have lots of detailed pics from the samples James sent me up on the site:

James, can you tell me what the yellow coloring is that sands right off the surface? Is it a patina of some kind or is it due to a protective finish that you put on in addition to waxing the ends?

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

I've got some of that too and left some of it in log form. The blanks I cut up were at least 1"x1"x 6-8" long. I dried some of mine in the microwave and "YES" it will warp and twist a little. That's why I oversized them. I can then square them up and they look like pen blanks. I haven't made anything from it yet but sooner or later I will.

Paul I dipped them (ends only) in something quite like anchorseal other than that they just laid on the tables for a while until I put them in the box the day before shipping. If I am correct none of that went through the kiln.

OK, thanks. Bit weird ... all of them but the little bowl blank had the yellow and it didn't. I'd just write it off as being an oxidation patina but so far the ones I sanded show no sign of re-acquiring the color which I assume they would if that's the cause. Maybe it takes quite a while.
