Stabilized Buckeye Burl BLOCK 2 x 2 x 5
Stabilized Buckeye Burl block. Approximate blank size 2" square by 5" long. Each blank is enough wood to make one deluxe salt and pepper shaker set. Also ideal for knife scales.
Stabilization refers to impregnating soft wood with resin, creating a blank that is no longer weak. Burl is a rare, abnormal growth on a tree that has beautiful swirling figure and eyes and is often used in high end furniture.
Please note: it is not unusual for buckeye burl to contain small voids. These can be easily filled with CA glue and are not considered defects.
The blank in the picture has been sanded to show the figuring. Photo is a representative image; your blank will be selected at random.
Price per blank in Canadian dollars.
