Asian Crepe Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica, is a small deciduous hardwood/shrub tree from Korea, China, and the Indian Subcontinent. It only reaches a maximum height of around 20 ft. The bark is a prominent feature being smooth, pinkish-gray and mottled, shedding each year. The wood in this special was cut from two very rare burls that grew underground. It has been cut for 3 years and stored in two large burl pieces. These burls lost some of their moisture but the blanks are considered partially air dried to freshly cut. The yellower pieces have more moisture than the lighter golden colored pieces. This is incredible wood in very large pieces for the species. All blanks are wax sealed.
