DETAILS
Madrone is known as Strawberry tree, Madrona, or Madrone burl. This is a unique Pacific hardwood that has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Our Madrone blanks are highly burled & figured. Through our proprietary process, the wood has been pressure cooked to relieve tension and then partially air dried. These pieces are ideal for gallery grade projects and high end woodworking as well as Bass and Electric guitars.
Trees are typically 10” up to 30” diameter and between 40-70’ tall. Trunks are smooth as silk due to the tree shedding its bark continually. Logs are rarely straight so lumber over 10’ long is a rarity. Random trees growing in mixed stands of Douglas fir produce the best lumber as the trunk is long and relatively strait. Trees in the open are much more bushy with many limbs that will not produce good lumber. Burls grow almost exclusively underground and must be dug up sometimes by hand and then pressure cooked and milled. Many Madrone trees grow in areas that have many rocks so our sawyers have their hands full milling around the rocks and dirt pockets that are present in every burl. This is expensive due to the large number of saw blades that are destroyed and the large amount of labor milling this.

Unique coloring and figure. Rustic live edge. A few hairline surface checks and couple end checks. 1/8" bow. Great for guitar base or electric guitar billet.
