I scored 5 of these blanks and have just been told there may be a couple more available, but the guy is not sure.
The colours are fabulous and are a freak of nature, as many others of this same species have nowhere near the colour that these have. These 3 bowls are sanded only to 400g and have not been polished.
The wood is very like Flamed Box Elder or your Ambrosia Maple but it is a Native of Australia and is commonly known where these were salvaged, as “Golden Wattle”.
I really would like to get hold of a truck load of this stuff but that is not going to happen, I’ll just have to pray that there are a couple more pieces of log on the pile.
Thanks for looking.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
