"READY TO SHAPE" RED AND BLACK PALM EXOTIC WOOD BARRELS - This listing gives you the option to pick a Red or Black Palm barrel blanks that will arrive "ready to shape" and pre-drilled with a smooth 5/8" center bore. And our newest addition to this listing are the stabilized Red and Black Palm barrels. You asked for them so we listened and they're now available!!
This is a very unique wood species and they make great duck or goose call barrels. This wood in it's natural state can be on the dry side and they will split if you use too much pressure from an expanding mandrel. So you caution when you mount one of these pre-drilled barrel blanks on your mandrel.
NEW STABILIZED BLACK & RED PALM BARRELS NOW AVAILABLE!!
The stabilized barrels are much heavier and they're much more stable and sturdy. You should still use caution with any wood barrel when you use an expanding mandrel because if you expand the mandrel too much they will split just about any wood barrel.
The Red Palm and Black Palm is a beautiful wood that turns great and it's also easy to sand and to dip or spray with a clear coat or a rubbed oil finish. The stabilized barrels are very similar to an acrylic barrel because the solution used to stabilize the wood makes them very solid. They're super nice to work with on the lathe!! There's a huge difference between the regular palm wood barrels when compared to the stabilized barrels.
