Dalbergia maritima is one of several Dalbergias that originate on the island of Madagascar.  Perhaps the most beautiful when freshly machined and Beet red in color, this wood oxidizes to dark violet & black.  The wood is dense and takes a very smooth glass like polish.  It is a scarce wood that is only available in small boards or squares.  Our stock is from the Late 90′s when it was more readily available.   All stock is dry and ready to use.  This was imported 9 years ago and has air dried perfectly.  These all have the vivid beet color when freshly surfaced or milled.  We gently sanded one face to give you a peak of what is inside.  We only sanded about a 1/32″ off so the color will be more vivid when cut into.  Ages to black.  A great tonal wood that is well suited for acoustic instrument bridge blanks and ukulele fingerboards. Limited supply!  No checks or other defects.

Borneo Ebony

W20639
Was: $177.25
Now: $154.00!
Qty: 1
W20639 specs.:
10 lbs. 9″ x 9″ x 3-3/16″

Borneo Ebony is a Diospyros sp. that is black in color with reddish/brown stripes that run parallel to the grain. Sometimes the sapwood is white. Only wood from very old trees or the heartwood is black or very dark in color. It is always carved when wet (before it dries out) in order to be malleable for the chisel. Its hardness and straight grain make it ideal for the carver. Usually, the finishing is done with a black wax to make the wood look darker, but the natural color is very beautiful. One unusual quality of Borneo Ebony is that if it cracks before it is dry, the crack will quite often close up again, leaving no trace of any flaw. Surfaced two sides and wax sealed. W20639: Air dried for 3 years. Still has moisture.

Buckeye Burl

W20137
Was: $135.00
Now: $109.99!

W20137 specs:
3 lbs. 23-3/4″ max. x 9″ (down to 3-3/8″) x 1-1/8″

Buckeye Burl (Aesculus californica) is an unusual species. Colors range from blue-black to golden whites with a nice mixture in between. Buckeye is a very difficult and expensive wood to mill. Some of the obstacles faced when milling are rocks, sand, dirt, bullets, and rattle snakes. Yes, rattle snakes inside the voids in the burl! The Base of the tree (root wad) that is underground produces 90% or more of the burl. The burls can range from 50 pounds up to several thousand in their natural state. When converting a burl into usable wood there is usually between 60-75% waste. Buckeye is processed all the way down to half pen blanks to yield everything possible. Buckeye is purchased in raw form by the pound and then trucked to our mill. About a third of the cost of milling is labor, followed by blades. When the wood dries it loses almost all of its weight. A block that weighed 7 pounds wet only weighs a little over a pound when it dried. This is why the burl is sold by the piece so that you get the best value.
Saleable Buckeye will commonly have bark incursions, live edges, and voids in burl eyes. These are commonly filled with crushed minerals or left as voids to add natural beauty in finished projects. If you are looking for defect free Buckeye you should limit the size to 12″ or less and 3″ wide or less in 1″ thick material. If you need larger sizes pick another species or be prepared to work with and around voids and defects. Although Buckeye is a hardwood it is much softer than many soft woods. With this in mind it is ideal to stabilize for knives and pens. Superglue can be used to do this for pens and can save a couple of dollars per pen over stabilizing. Buckeye is often used in decorative boxes and in Electric and Bass guitars. The amazing patterns & colors of this wood make it very popular.

Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Large bark incursions and natural edges with bark. There are also some surface checks, end checks/splits, other defects, etc in some pieces.  USA only.

Myrtle is one of our specialty woods, as it is grown and harvested right here in our home state of Oregon, hand selected by us, trucked with our semi to our yard, and carefully milled in our facility. Myrtlewood is renowned throughout the Pacific Northwest for its excellent machining and finishing properties as well as its beautiful color, spicy aroma, and figure. Also known as Bay Laurel, California Olive, Pepper wood, or Spice tree wood, this versatile hardwood grows only in Oregon and Northernmost California. Colors range drastically even in the same log so that a range from golden yellow, green, black, brown, tan, and violet can exist. Each board is unique, making each project a one of a kind. Flame or fiddleback is a rare quality that few boards posses. Myrtle wood is great for the beginner and expert alike.  All of this is dry and surfaced on two sides.  A few may have some planer skip.  Small to medium sized incursions are present in all of these.  Some are minor while others are larger and will need to to be filled with or left natural.  W18460 and W18461  are a book matched set.

Our stock is selectively cut and logged by hand in Mexico, squared by chainsaw, and drug out of the forest by Mules. This is a very environmentally low impact procedure. Cocobolo is a true Rosewood, similar in color & tap tone to Brazilian Rosewood and considered to be a good substitute. It is denser than most Rosewoods and oilier. For best results in gluing, epoxy is recommended. Cocobolo has great working properties & turns to a naturally high polish. The colors range from any combination of orange, red, yellow, & black to violet. For this reason, it has also been called rainbow wood. Mexico and Central America.  W17140: Four checks on one face near the edge in the flatsawn grain.  These checks are the noticeable black streaks.  Slight planer skip.

Cinnamumum camphor. A rare burl that is highly prized. Unlike most highly figured burls camphor is very stable requiring very little special care in its conversion from large burls to cut blanks. Most burls are very delicate requiring years of knowledge and experience to carefully cut and season. Camphor is usually available in veneer form and occasionally blocks and squares. We sell a lot of camphor for electric guitars as it makes a delightful top! Smelling of root beer the fragrance is either loved or despised. Most like the smell although it can be very strong with green stock. South east Asia. Absolutely the best Camphor! Ideal for electric guitars and the most exquisite articles you can imagine! 1/4″ bow (the wood bends flat easily with clamps).

Golden Teak burl, Gmelia arborea, is rarely seen on the World market. It grows in the western low land Himalayas in a variety of forest habitats, including tropical semi-evergreen, and deciduous forests. It also occurs in low alluvial savannah woodlands. The tree demands lots of sun, although it can tolerate some shade. It is moderately tolerant to frost and recovers quickly from frost injuries. The tree shows a preference for moist fertile valleys and grows best on high silt deposits near rivers. It does not thrive where the drainage is poor, while on dry, sandy or otherwise poor soil it remains stunted and is apt to assume little more than a shrubby form because of repeated dying back through drought.  These are the trees that produce the best burls as the tree is under stress.  Flowers produce abundant nectar, which produces high-quality honey. Air dried and wax sealed. W20971: Solid 95% burl.  1″ incursion on one face.  W20972: Rough corner. Some burls are open.  W20973: 3/4″ incursion on one end.
