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.
The blank in the picture has been sanded to show the figuring. Photo is a representative image; your blank will be selected at random.
