These blanks are part of the Golden Wattle New tree that I acquired some time ago, this tree had a lot more "reds" in it than the previous tree however, the tree has been dead for some time and the wood started deteriorating very fast.

While this wood was spalted and soft in areas, all the very soft blanks from the logs were selected and treated separately and therefore also finished different (blue dyed).

The blanks that were all solid, became one of my best sellers and those I sold first but, when the solid wood blanks numbers started to reduce in stock dramatically, I decided to treat (stabilized) the blanks that could be sold as is but, nearly all of them had one or more soft patches so, I decided to harden them all out and become a "replacement" for the better raw ones, almost all gone.

In fact, the softer the wood became from spalting, the brighter the "reds" and some of the blacks become so, if there were blanks in that whole tree that produced the brightest and most colourations, they are indeed the winners...!

Sure, there is the cost of stabilization Vs the raw ones however, for the extra money, the stabilized ones are the best value for the money simply from being the strongest, easiest to work with and finish.

One of the blanks surfaces was coated with some gloss varnish to enhance all its colours...!
