This wood was supplied by a friend of mine that deals with large woods, based in Queensland.  He visited Tasmania a few months back, and he purchased a few native woods to Tassie.

We swap wood all the time and sometimes, I buy small amounts of his woods, just to allow a little more variety of species, that I can offer to friends, etc, these will never be local to me however, I do prefer focusing on the local wood species I have all around me, and the main reason why collect and process it for everyone, purchased woods will always be a little more costly, Interstate freight alone, is very expensive...!

Anyway, this Tasmanian Oak-Burl I'm offering was provided to me as a half burl, that has been cut a long time ago but was part of the auctioned lot of that wood at the Tassie supplier, most were large full burls.  

This burl wood has 2 main densities the softest one closer to the burl's edge, the natural colouration is different reason why when stabilised with the blue dye, the softer parts took the colour well but, as any other harder wood areas, the Cactus Juice penetrates but the colour particles don't therefore, the colour contrast seen.

Blanks are waxed on one of its surfaces, for colour enhancement, only.  These are sold is packs of 4 blanks...!

 

Thank you for visiting...!
