This high quality Maple Burl wood was cut from whole burls into colorful, burly, figured woodturning blanks in April 2019. This blank contains moisture and is fully wax sealed. The wax can easily be turned off on the lathe as you are turning. Bark incursions and live bark edges may be present as well as some minor checks (see photos for details). Blank may develop shrinkage or checking as it ages. We recommend twice turning this lovely Maple! This mini slab is waxed on the face with numerous small incursions present. It has lost 70% of its original moisture as of April 2019. Must be able to work with the natural characteristics.
