This just showed up today.
A guy brought in a load of maple burl. A few good burl caps and this slab with a messed up cut.
I grabbed it before anyone else started getting ideas.
Looks to be good clean burl without bark pockets or other things that get in the way of good knife handle blocks.
Really good burl figure over 90%+ of the slab.
Won't be much waste from this piece. Size is about 32" x 24" x 4"+
Regular blonde maple burl like this sells, but slowly.
So I will probably be getting about 75% of this dyed when I send it in for stabilizing.
The advice I need from you guys/gals is what colors?
Usually I do blue, black and brown.
But.....I would like to hear what you have to say.
Maple burl takes dye better than most other woods so anything goes.
