    New 9/8/2013 Some of my very best Stabilized Maple Burl Blocks

    These are without a doubt, some of the very best Blocks of stabilized Oregon Maple Burl I have ever had.
    The light color piece in the center is there as a reference to show what is the normal color for Maple.

    These blocks have vivid dark coloring, bold burl figure from edge to edge, and NO FLAWS.

    To take a closer look at what is still available just click on the photo.

    Very nice. Wish I still had my old shop. I would love to try my hand at making a few handles.

    I sand the blocks to 220 grit and then spray them with a light coat of aerosol lacquer.
    This gives an accurate glimpse of the colors and figure.
    The wood will look way better when you fine sand and finish it.
