Madrone Burl

Also known as Strawberry tree or Madrona, this beautiful Pacific hardwood has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Green lumber is unstable until is carefully dried; once dried it has excellent stability. Madrone is hard and fairly difficult to saw, but it is possible to get a beautiful, high polish in finishing. Madrone has been compared to the texture of European Pear wood, even thought to be superior in grain & workability.

Also known as Strawberry tree or Madrona, Madrone burl is a Pacific hardwood that has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Most of our Madrone pieces are highly burled & figured. Through our proprietary process, the wood is pressure cooked to relieve tension and then air dried for up to two years.  Most pieces have minimal checks, incursions, or other issues (small defects will be noted).  These pieces are ideal for gallery grade projects and high end woodworking as well as Bass and Electric guitars.

These are beautiful pressure cooked madrone burl bowl blanks. These pieces have eyes and figure patterns. The pressure cooking relieves the internal tension which reduces possibility of surface checks. These have air dried for a year and have lost half of their original moisture content. These are wonderful for turned articles such as bowls, peppermills, knife handles, boxtops, etc. They are wax sealed.

3/4″ incursion on one face that is the black streak on the numbered face. Exhibition grade burl eyes.

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.

Pressure cooked to relieve internal tension. The 1″ stock is dry. The 2″ stock still has some residual moisture as of October 2013 but is close to dry. It will be mostly dry within 6 months. Minor planer skip. Expect 1/16″ to 1/8″ bow in pieces longer than 15″. This will bend flat with minimal pressure. Surfaced on 2 sides. Possibility of small bark incursions in a few burl eyes. Great color!
