NOTE: This listing doesn't offer pack(s) choices, blanks/packs are too identical to require such method so, simply select "Add to cart" and then select the number of packs you want, on the "quantity" window.
For international buyers, I can fit 1 of these packs in a small padded 250gr. envelop for AU$9.00 anywhere in the world.
These blanks were cut from some very old Red Gum Burls, purchased at a farm auction in the beginning of 2011.
For a more detailed story of how I got the burls, read here.
The wood is solid with small cracks found throughout the burl, these are not your normal cracks but small wood cell separation as the burl dries. These being so old have certainly developed a few extra but they are in fact more of a "feature" to the burled wood that a flaw.
Many other types of burls have these small cracks also, some a lot larger in fact...!
While the wood is extremely heavy and dense, it works beautifully and reaches a good finish quite easily.
NOTE: Blanks have one face waxed for colour enhancement, allowing the true colours to be visible...!
Thank you for visiting...!
