    Ok A 80mm x 150mm turning blank will do, or if any one has something else, Australian must have burl like features needs to be something out of the ordinary

    Can't remember ever seeing a burl on a Blackwood tree here in Tassie.

    I have to admit I have never seen one either, although most trees have this feature around the base root system.

    This was as close to a burl I could find in my lot for Bob (China)
    They are folds more so than burls, I havenít come across any Blackwood with burls either.
    This one is cootamundra Wattle, the whole tree had gnarled feature along the sap line.

    The Blackwood had grub issues, the tree may have been damaged due to that?

    Iíve probably got a piece that size lying around that you can have if you like. Itís a piece that I bought from maple man a while ago. Itís not a burl just a straight piece if thatís any help

    I have some nice bark inclusion birdseye blackwood in the shed in 25mm thick boards, maybe even some solid pure birdseye blackwood left over from a musical grade log if you are still looking. As for blackwood burls, I have only cut 1 since 1998!

    Cheers

    James.

    Thanks James birdseye sounds interesting I was after apiece large enough to turn although it seems like I may have to settle for making a small box from boards, I have had a few offers and have been giving them consideration
    yours sound closest to what I am looking for, do you have any photo's

    Hi China,

    Here are some pictures of the bark inclusioned birdseye from a recent customer's dart board cabinet and my daughters toy/blanket box. I'll try and get one of the solid birdseye boards if I have any left. I have some solid redgum birdseye billets, maybe some mallee root burl, plenty of insane fiddleback in blackwood(last photo) and redgum, maybe myrtle, dried between 8-20 years. Also have tiger myrtle 75x75 square stock, dried over 10 years. Maybe you should pop over to the shed!

    I've got an almost perfect donut burl, around dia 400mm, from half way up a small tree (dia 100) that came down in the mini cyclone that hit The Gap in Brisbane ~10 years back(?). The trees up here often get them, almost like the tree was sliced in half, the rejoined with a burl bandage .

    I was attending to one day day make some nice bowls from it.

    But sorry not about to cut off a small section of it.
