Eucalyptus corrugata

Eucalyptus corrugata of the family Myrtaceae. Native to Western Australia and also known as rib-fruited mallee, this tree grows to 10 to 30 feet high and not particularly thick. I have never seen even pictures of the lumber, just the burl, which I believe is a root burl. I have never had a piece myself.

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions

None yet

web pics:

burl and closeup


burl turning stock

burl pen blanks

burl scales

burl bowls

top and bottom of a really beautifully executed burl bowl

burl bowl listed as corrugata, but to me this looks a LOT more like York gum burl

Although this bowl was listed just as corrugata, I have seen similar pieces labeled "gummy" corrugata
