These blanks were sorted by their softness when cutting 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 written 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 coloured dyes with the stabilizing solution but this time, I decided to do some with the clear solution, and the natural colours are beautiful. 

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