Claro Walnut Burl (Juglans hindsi) is a unique Walnut species that grows right around the area where Cook Woods is located. Combining beautiful violet and brownish black streaks and wild figured burl eyes, Claro walnut burl is favored for high end veneer for cars, jets, turned articles, and exquisite jewelry boxes. Most of the supply originates in orchards as either production walnut trees or wind row trees to slow the wind and show property lines. Claro Walnut Burl is a beautiful wood that is in high demand and short supply. It is dense but works and finishes well with the use of a grain sealer.
All of the blanks are freshly cut and wax sealed. They are ideal for twice turned bowls. These are excellent blanks that are 95% free of defects. The small percentage of defects such as a rough edge or slight bark edge will easily turn away. Fiddleback shows on quarter to rift sawn faces or edges.
Quarter sawn edges have AAA+ figure that penetrates through the piece. Ideal for veneering if you can work with drying the piece.
