 An interesting tree that I cut late 2013, from a house that was sold at that time.  The new owner had other ideas for the large yard and the trees that were planted in there, everything was overgrown and not letting much sun shine through, where they wanted it, and that was, in an area where they wanted to put a swimming pool.

These tree species are quite messy, the juicy berries do stain everything, not suitable for humans, some birds love them and there is when the big mess starts, the birds shake the berries bunches so that the ripe ones fall down and then, they fly to the ground to eat them but, in the mean time, many berries that aren't ripe, also fall to the ground, walking over they squash and squirt everywhere. This tree has also grown embedded in a fence that needed replacement so, the tree was doomed to come out...!

I had seen these trees before but, I didn't know its name so, after I cut if down I processed some of its green wood and put it to dry, this tree species became #79 on my "Timber List" under the name, "Red fruit small bunches tree", this was to remind me what the tree was.  Only a very small number of these blanks were sold in the first year, and they went to the large mix packs where I put one blank of each of my woods so, those where microwave tried to be part of those packs.

This tree had a large limb that has died long ago but, was still attached to the tree, this was also processed as pen blanks but I put them to dry, as they were wet from some rain.  I endup forgetting all about these blanks, only when I recently finished the green blanks I made out of the green wood, I realise that I had also a good bunch of the dead dry limb, more them dry and ready to be finish and list on this store.

The wood is now, medium to soft density but works very easily, all blanks are coated at one face with wax for colour enhancement for the pictures shown. Wood is dry and ready to go...!


Thanks for visiting...!
