Big Leaf Maple, Acer macrophylum, has excellent color variations that range from white to coral pink & light brown. No two blanks or capsare the same. This is another reason that Maple is such a fun wood for those who seek a creative flare in their projects. These burls are exceptionally clean.
Burl caps are measured from thelongestpoint and the width is taken at90 degrees from the length. They are mostly oblong in shape and can produce some amazing bowls and turned articles with natural burl points. The thickness is the maximum height from the cutface. These are all pressure washed clean of bark to show the unique burl points. The capshavebeenpartially air dried and havelost more than half of the original moisture. We can ship this material to the USA or overseas.All cut blocks and squares are freshly cut and are completely wax sealed. Bowl blanks have 75% or more burl in them on the faces.The blanks will dry slowly through the wax.
