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 focusingon 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 wood has at least 4 very different wood/grain formations, one of which I'm offering here, was provided to me as a 2" slices that as the pics show, have areas of soft veined burl/wood.

Stabilisation can improve its workability however, if some care is taken and sharp tools are used, in conjunction with constant soaking with thin CA (super glue), there should be no reason why a good final result is achieved.

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

 

Thank you for visiting...!
