Thuya Burl Turning Squares

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.

Makamong Burl Table Slab

Afzelia xylocarpa

This slice of burl came from an ancient forest tree of Laos. Surviving its youth as a sapling, it survived despite tropical monsoons, insect invasions, and wars to become a behemoth 16 feet in girth and 50 feet to its first branch. It eventually succumbed to old age and began the inevitable journey back to the earth from whence it came. This burl was rescued before its total demise but not before some insects left some damage in the outer sapwood. A unique, one-of-a-kind forest gem.
