Most of the wood/burl processed from this timber species, was stabilised either clear or dyed blue or red, due to the fact that, this burl is old and the tree was dying.  The wood is very light weight and some care should be taken when turning them.  Preferably, the wood should be harden/stabilised in some way, that would increase its workability however, as it is, is still workable.

The idea to offer some of these blanks in its raw form is based on the fact that, shipping is costly therefore, buying these blanks raw to have them treated yourself, would save you some good dollars, the wood has little weight and 500gr of these blanks, is about 3 packs, many of you already have the stabilization equipment/gear so, no reason why you couldn't treat them yourself.  Regardless of what I do, my stabilization costs are high and blanks like this stabilized, weight a lot more...!

Not having the stabilization gear, doesn't stop you hardening the wood, using the super thin CA, a couple of times during the turning process and, they will be as good and strong, as the stabilized ones...!

Blanks are coated with wax at one face only, for colour enhancement...!

 

Thank you for visiting...!
