I just finished adding a bunch more new blocks of dyed & stabilized Maple Burl to our web store.
Very unusual looking blocks. Professionally dyed and stabilized by K&G so you know it was done right.
Click on the photo to go to the section of the store where the dyed Maple burl is located.

I just finished adding about a dozen more blue blocks to the store.
These are a bit more unusual than the normal unusual stuff.
There was a bunion type Maple burl cap that had been used as a landscape piece outside my office for over a year. I would walk past it daily and never really noticed it. One day the sunlight hit it just right and I finally noticed what had been under my nose for months.

This is what it looked like prior to cutting.

Then I made a few cuts to see what was inside.

Great figure but the color was sort of bland.
So.....when I sent it to K&G to get it stabilized, I asked them to dye it blue.
Here is how it turned out.
