Wanted - Waratah/Telopea blank (or other NSW wood)
Evening all, I've been tasked with making a few pens.
4 x Qld woods (looked after thanks to Mapleman)
1 x West Aussie wood (have plenty of Sheoak & Jarrah)
1 x NSW wood. I've got a few ideas but am thinking of Waratah/Telopea as the states flora symbol.
Has anyone got a blank or two of it they'd be willing to share? I'm happy to fix whoever up with some cash or do a swap with some of my blanks. I'm also open to suggestions for other woods which would satisfy the requirement of being NSW woods.

The best Camphor Laurel is from NSW, you should have some of that.
Also, maybe Flooded Gum, the tallest tree in NSWNeil____________________________________________Every day presents an opportunity to learn something new

Camphor is out as it's not a native species. Flooded Gum & Sydney Blue Gum are both options and I have some SBG in the shed somewhere which would satisfy the requirements.
Finding a timber which is native to just one state of Australia isn't really that easy so I thought wood from the states floral emblem would satisfy the brief nicely.It's only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

Most of the states don't have plants which could be used at all but the Waratah/Telopea would be fine for a pen or two.It's only a mistake if you don't learn from it.
