This Ring Dish was made from a Red Mallee Burl. It was turned on my lathe and sanded to 800 grit. You will notice that the bottom was left in its natural state. This is truly one of a kind find. I finished it with Walnut Oil, Carnuba Wax, and Shellac mixture. As a ring dish, you will have a beautiful place to put your best jewelry on for the evening. As a display piece, it will Gace any setting you choose to display. This is one of those pieces that will be a sought after heirloom from the very first day.
Mallees are the dominant vegetation throughout semi-arid areas of Australia with reliable winter rainfall. Within this area, they form extensive woodlands and shrublands covering over 250,000 square kilometers. Thus mallee woodlands and shrublands are considered one of Australia's Major Vegetation Groups
Red Mallee is a "scrubland vegetation" that is common in many parts of Australia and seems to have dozens of varieties. The trees are prolific producers of burl growths which can be harvest without cutting down the tree. Which is why you normally see Australian Burls in cap form. Among other things, it produces a useful oil.
As you care for your loved wooden pieces, please don't use household wax. Most all wax, except high-end wax, will leave fingerprint marks and gather dust. I would suggest a Carnuba wax, Renaissance Micro-Crystalline Wax Polish. or Dr. Kirk's Versa-Wax Microcrystalline Polishing Wax.
