Precious Australian Goldfield Burl

Precious Australian Goldfield Burl

Red Mallee burl is one of four unique and incredible burls that grow in the Australian gold mining fields. This native Australian timber has a distinctive mix of vivid pink, red, and violet heartwood with contrasting white sapwood. The wood is dense and easily yields a smooth, durable finish with light sanding. It is a rare wood that offers a naturally artistic palette for any artisan. Burl squares and bowl blanks have tight figure/burl and colors that are ideal forboxes, spindles, pens, knives, and other fine articles. Burl eyes may develop incursions but are generally very small and limited to the sapwood.
