Southeast Asian Iron Burl wood combines figure and burl with warm Amboyna-like colors! It is two shades lighter than Amboyna Burl but similar in density and working properties. Bark incursions and checks may be present in some pieces. Most blanks are dry but may contain residual moisture. This high end hardwood is ideal for fine woodworking projects such as jewelry boxes, pistol grips, knife scales, and more! You’ll love working with this rare wood. This peppermill has some bark edges with several 1-2" checks/splits present on the right edge. Some may turn away. Must be able to work with the noted defects.
