The burr wood blanks are meant to be used with the corresponding mould from our burr wood and silicone pendant mould set. Please ensure that you select the right shape based on the shape of the mould that you have purchased.
Each wood burr is specifically trimmed and shaped to perfection to fit the corresponding mould of 7mm depth. Please take note that the silicone mould is not included. If you would like to purchase the corresponding mould, you may purchase our burr wood and silicone pendant mould set.
Due to the nature of the product, the grain and colour of the burr wood will be unique and different for every piece. Any markings or imperfections in the wood are part of and integral to the character of the natural material.
Our burrs are harvested from Australian Mallee (eucalyptus). The wood is richly coloured (compared to the non burred wood) and comes up a treat when polished. They are robust, stable and hard and can be polished with danish oil, a polyurethane spray or even a thin layer of resin.
A burr (or burl if you're from across the pond) is a tree growth which has caused the wood to grow in a deformed way. Usually this is from an injury to the tree or a virus, fungus or disease. This means that the wood is full of small knots and therefore looks very attractive when worked, and their waney edge retained. Burrs are often highly prized and are sought after for use in furniture, sculpture, art and jewellery.
