Brown Mallee Burl Pen Blanks - 7/8"
Brown Malle (Eucalyptus dumosa, E. viridis) is a species of Austrian eucalyptus that is common in Australia. The heartwood is generally medium brown, sometimes with an orange cast. Pale yellow to gray sapwood is sharply demarcated from heartwood.. 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.
As opposed to Red Mallee Burl, Brown Mallee Burl doesn’t refer to a specific tree of the same name, but rather describes burl pieces from various Eucalyptus species where the wood itself is brown in color
