Not rated yet

Red River Gum Burl (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) is hard, heavy, and dense. Also known as Australian Murray Red River Resin Gum, the trees are usually found by flowing water. Colors of the burl range from rich reds in the heartwood to creamy white in the sapwood. Red River Gum has resin pockets in the burl. This is normal for this species and can make some interesting pens. The voids can present a challenge when working but are well worth the effort when finished. You may fill the voids with sawdust and epoxy for a more natural look, or with colorful epoxy, or with crushed Turquoise or other minerals to make a unique one of a kind creation!
