OK so we’re #’ing things to keep track of it all against the material and the year created. This is my first experiment with red mallee – it’s pretty cool stuff. Tested it out with a small burl cap, leaving the outside natural. I also left the chainsaw marks on the surface where it’s not turned.
The material turned easy enough, polished very quickly, and took the tung oil finish quickly. So … now its time to get more and try to find it at a reasonable price! Searching for suppliers in Australia and checking our various lumber suppliers as well.
