These were blanks processed from some Palm tree logs dumped at the McLaren Vale firewood processing plant and while they were piled to be burn (no good for firewood) I recognise that they were different than the Palm trees I have ever collected.

The logs were heavy due to water saturation but at close inspection, I noticed that the colour was a dark red and not the normal whiteish of normal Palm trees.

When processing it, was obvious that I had a different species of Palm tree that not only had a red colour but had also a harder wood/fibres.

Regular Palm tree blanks are very difficult to work with due to their softness and reason I stabilise them however, these don't require stabilisation, you can if you want but is not required for making regular pen blanks.

Most logs were cut fairly short, theses blanks final length are basically 1" shorter than the log was, reason I decided to keep them to full length available while other blanks were cut at regular pen blank lengths.

Blanks have a light coat of wax on one face for colour enhancement for the pics and presentation.
