These blanks were sorted by their softness when cut from the burl, the whole wood/burl is very light in weight, these trees were diseased when cut they were too close to houses and the rot close to its bases (where all the burls were) was very significant.

After the trees were cut, the bigger logs (main trunk wood where most of the rot was) were left piled in the paddock while the rest was taken as firewood. I have wrote a bit of story about us (wife and I) "getting" these logs before they would be destroyed forever, you can read it in here.

I have stabilized a few of these burl blanks using the clear stabilizing solution but this time, I decided to do some with a purple stabilizing solution I had made. Everything about this burl wood is amazing and the idea to stabilize then in purple, turned out to be a good decision, they come up stunning, don't you think...???

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

Thank you for visiting...!
