This is a Cook Woods exclusive species! Many people have heard of Curly Pyinma, which is a beautiful, highly figured exotic hardwood that has deep penetrating curl. This burl wood is cut from burls of the same Pyinma tree. These burls are very rare and difficult to obtain! The wood is susceptible to surface checks and pin holes before drying. It is excellent for pool cues, knives, duck calls, bowls, vessels, and other high end articles. This material has been partially air dried for 3 years (as of September 2018), but may contain some slight residual moisture. Most blanks are completely wax sealed, except for the knife scales. Larger bowl blanks may have a minor check or two on the faces. These should easily turn away. Some spalting may be present on some pieces, but this can be stabilized with CA glue. 95% of these turning blanks are clean, free of defects, and have excellent burly grain (unless otherwise noted)! All of this stock was hand selected for incredible figure! 100 or more eyes are possible in one square inch on the museum grade pieces. This is incredible wood that has no equal. Please leave wax on the wood until use.This piece has four 1"-2" checks present. There are also a few incursions on each face.
