Brown Mallee burl is an incredible species with beautiful color and figure. This native Australian timber has a distinctive mix of golden brown heartwood with contrasting white sapwood. The wood is dense and easily yields a smooth, durable finish with light sanding. This rare lumber offers a natural, artistic palette for any artisan. Burl squares and bowl blanks have tight figure and colors that are ideal for boxes, spindles, pens, knives, and other fine articles. Burl eyes may develop generally small incursions but are commonly very small. Be prepared to fill the incursions with epoxy or a mixture of epoxy and minerals like Turquoise or other fine choices which can be found on our website.
