Default CARISSA lanceolata AKA Conkerberry

A slow growing shrub this blank from a piece well over a hundred years old. Beautiful colours
difficult to find pieces not eaten out by Termites. The shrub has a plum like fruit favoured by stock and indiginous people. Grows in the north of Australia,hard to find.

Thank you for taking us on a tour of Australia's superb woods Peter! Finishing is always spot on, do you use the same technique on all of the woods?
