Thuya Burl Blocks

Tetraclinis articulata

This comes from the Atlas mountains in Morocco and has a beautiful golden chatoyance. Its color varies from a rich, lustrous golden brown to nearly black. Thuya burl is hard and dense with a high oil content, but tends to be brittle. The eyes, perfectly round, are scattered about in some burls like the figure in bird's-eye maple; in others they are grouped as islands. Due to it's desert occurrence, the wood sometimes contains small defects or inclusions but most can be repaired with cyanoacrylate (super) glues. A rare species, this exquisite wood is used for inlays, small boxes, turnery, and precious objects.

These might have some defects common to burls.

Briar Burl

Erica arborea

There are defects but the burls will yield material for tobacco pipes, inlays, jewelry pieces, turnery, etc. These were harvested in the last couple of years, were boiled in water to bring out more color and to help stabilize the burls and were then slowly air-dried. Since these come from a temperate region and have remnants of bark many countries will not allow their importation without an expensive pytosanitary or fumigation certificate. Check with us or your customs or agriculture department representative.
