Red Mallee is a dense wood from Australia. This wood is not only beautiful is smells wonderful when I'm turning it, a blend of sandlewood and copal resin if you ask me. The tree's are large but the burls are growths that are harvested from the sides of the tree's. Australia has strict rules about doing this and it is done without damaging the tree's. Only a handfull of people get permits and have to follow removal guidelines. This pair was turned from the outer edge just under the bark of the burl, the sap wood. The color is a dusty rose.
This piece of Burl turned a fantastic pair of plugs! Great figure, swirls, rays, all together wonderful! Why not wear a little bit of our mother earth? Especially if it can look like this!
After hand sanding I rub them with organic grape seed oil. The oil brings out the color and grain beautifully while protecting the wood. They are measured with my digital calipers as I go and are double sided flared so no rubber ring is needed.
I am an avid woodworker, love all species. I turn many things, and while getting my last tattoo started talking to one of the artists about gauges. He encouraged me to give it a shot, turning them that is. So, here we go! Hope you enjoy what I did! Larissa
P.s. I won't be listing all sizes in all species, so if you like this wood and need another size convo me and I most likely can get them turned for you within a week. Sooner if a rush order is needed. Peace....
