Thread: Black Nargusta Burl Question

  1. #1

    Black Nargusta Burl Question

    I just finished cutting up a slab of Black Nargusta Burl and I'm debating whether or not to have the blocks stabilized. The specific gravity on this species ranges from .65 to .80 so it's at the lower end of what I usually consider a hardwood that doesn't need to be stabilized. The weight in my hand is a little less than what I'd like, but not by much. So I'm looking for some opinions: to stabilize or not to stabilize - what say you?

    Not permanently I go for a while and I am off for while. Just got back from Norway. Now I am working nights testing BOP's at the company I worked at for 18 years prior to this one it's kinda awkward.
