Madrone Burl Craft Blanks (5" x 2" x 7/8")

These craft blanks are dry and ready for projects, which could include: knives, pens, pistol grips, box parts and more! 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. 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. These are kiln dried and ready for use.

Extra Fancy Madrone Burl Veneer (13 x 13 x 1/32)

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. As with most figured veneer it will not be perfectly flat and will require proper veneer application techniques. Additionally, it is common to have 1-2” end splits and/or checks. Please expect to work with these checks. It is typical for the edges to be slightly frayed or rough (approximately 1/16” to ¼” into each edge). Please factor this into your final width. May have incursions near burl eyes. Pattern varies, but we always try to match as close as we can. Sizes listed have taken into account any end/edge checks that may be present. EACH SHEET SOLD SEPARATELY: 1 SHEET INCLUDED

Live Edge Madrone Burl Slice

This Madrone has beautiful pinkish-red or a lighter tannish-pink color. Slabs 1-2” thick have been air dried and are ready to use. Turning Blanks have been pressure cooked to relieve tension and prevent degrading; however, they do contain residual moisture. Wood is stable but needs some time to dry completely. Many blanks have checks, please see photos. Some turn away, some will not. A very small incursion or bug holes may be present. Boards/Slabs longer than 16” may have up to 1/8” bow (most have 1/16” or less). This is great quality, beautiful Oregon wood! This slice has numerous checks and soft spots. Stabilizing needed on the rear face. There are also bark incursions, drying checks and voids along with bug holes/trails. Be aware there are deep incursions at the bottom of the board that are penetrating. Please see the photos.
