Red gum comes from the heartwood
portion of the sweet gum tree. Many trees do not contain any colored heartwood.
Proper growing conditions allow the wood to begin changing colors. Usually
contains mixed streaks of reddish-brown, blue-gray, yellow, and black. Turns
very easily, sands well and takes on a high polish. Absolutely gorgeous material
to work with!
