    This set is Maple Burl, but toward the outside edge of the burl. In this area of the wood, you find a lot of meandering graining as the figure changes from burl eyes, to the normal grain run found in 95% of the tree. The result is surely beautiful to see. This set even has some spalting started on it. Enjoy the pics!

    Here's an interesting set of Amboyna Burls......Yes, the usual outstanding color. Yes, the beautiful burl coverage. So, what's interesting? You usually don't see much curl figure in this burl, let alone a big stripe of it. A great combination! I'm not going to say it's rare, but it is unusual enough that it really catches my attention. I think it's really cool!
    Hope you enjoy the pics!

    Here's a set of Cocobolo which is pretty standard material, but can have some wild and beautiful patterns and colors to it. Believe it or not, these two panels are bookmatched.
    More of nature's wild beauty for us to enjoy!

    Todays set is done in Thuya Burl. This burl actually grows underground in big balls under the tree. It is not only rare, but what makes it even harder to find is that the harvest of it is extremely regulated (an idea I agree with by the way). It is a gorgeous wood, but very oily. I actually carry small sticks of this wood that I have cut on my person when I go on my one man woods adventures, as it will catch on fire no matter how wet it is. The oilyness makes it challenging to get a solid finish on it, but that's part of the fun of working with it.
    Enjoy!

    Todays set is done in Ramon Burl. Ramon Burl ranges a little in color from a carmel down through almost a reddish tinted grey. The nice pieces exhibit full and tight burl coverage that is very visually interesting. It's a light, but hard wood and is good for use in grip panels. Overall it is beautiful stuff. Not really rare, but relatively unknown, it's not unusual for people to have never heard of it.
    Enjoy!

    Okay, this is jumping way ahead in the order, but you've just GOT to see this wood. I just finished these last night and boy is this some gorgeous Walnut or what?! Everything about this wood is special! The colors, the pattern, the figure - it's all over the top. Seeing stuff like this just makes my week.
    I hope you enjoy it as I have!

    Guys, do you realize that this thread has been up for just over two years now (started January 16th '09) and we are creeping up on 40,000 views? Wow. Good to see that there are those out there that can appreciate what nature gives us as much as I do! Time flies when you're having fun!

    Todays set is the aptly named Bloodwood. It's rich, deep red color is elegant while being aesthetically, very pleasing. It goes well with either light or dark frames. Just more beautiful stuff!
