    Favorite woods from Tasmania and Aus?

    A friend of mine is going to Tasmania and Australia for a few weeks and we were talking about him sending home some really cool slabs for table and bench tops.

    What would your first choice be?

    Red Mallee burl, in my books is up there with the top three most beautiful woods in the world.

    Thanks for that. We may be going to Australia to visit our son and his family in December. I would like to ship back a box of wood to myself while there.
    BTW, we are saving pennies for the possible trip. I'll be selling my camper trailer to help finance the 20 hour, cramped, cheap seats on the air plane ride.
