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 waxed and are non-stabilized. 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 our site
Pen Blanks are approx. 7/8" square x 5 1/4" long and are priced per each. Photos show multiple blanks to illustrate the range of colors and figures.
