Red Mallee Burl Pen Blanks - pre-tubed for Sierra twist size

Red Malle (Eucalyptus oleosa, E. socialis) is a species of Australian eucalyptus that is common in Australia. Red Mallee is prized for its heavy concentration of burl eyes and vivid color and figure. This burl features a  distinctive mix of pink, red, and violet heartwood with contrasting white sapwood. Mallees are usually smaller and shorter than trees, and grow multiple smaller-diameter stems from a common root system. Because of this, most mallee species are ill suited for lumber, though they do have a propensity for burl growths that can be harvested and used for turning pens, bowls and other small objects.

Pen Blanks come pre-tubed, the size of a sierra twist pen. They are not stabilized Mallee is dense, does not need stabilizing. As with all burls, there may be small voids. This can be filled with a mix of sawdust and epoxy, colored epoxy, or powdered gemstones found on the our site

Pen Blanks shown are the actual blanks you will receive.  Make your selection from the drop-down menu.
