Juglans regia emanates from Circassia in the Cacausus Mountain region and is the original Walnut of Europe.  The tree was prized for its walnuts and was planted all throughout Europe and England.  Color variations are due to the varied climates and soil conditions in which the tree grows.  Juglans walnut is translated to “white walnut” so finding dark striping and marble cake figure is the rare exception. This wood has been prized for centuries for firearm stocks and fine furniture. It works and finishes much better than any native American Walnut species.  The grain is exceptionally fine and holds an edge quite well which makes it exceptional for checkering on rifle and shotgun stocks.

English Walnut from the USA is typically grown in orchards where the stump (root system) is California Claro Walnut (Juglans hindsii) grafted to the thin shelled English Walnut.  English Walnut trees are generally small due to a weaker root system and do not produce a large amount of nuts. Claro Walnut root systems are very strong and in a sense turbo charge the growth of walnuts which is the goal of the nut producers.  A plentiful thin shelled nut of high quality is produced.  A wonderful by-product of the grafting is a California Claro Walnut burl underground and a larger than usual English Walnut trunk.  Black or dark streaks are produced in a small amount of trees and there is a lot of discussion as to why certain trees have more of the desired streaking while others may not have any at all.  When trees produce exceptionally large trunks and stunning striping, they are often used for firearms. Rifle blanks often sell for between $500 to $2,500 with some stock blanks fetching upwards of $5,000 each!

Live bark edge, can ship to the USA only. Beautiful color! Bug holes in sapwood. Heart check down one face. Crotchwood figure at one end. The wide end has an 8″ long oblong void running parallel to the crotchwood about 1″ from the center of the crotchwood area. There are a couple of machine marks and knots with checks.

Live bark edge, can ship to the USA only. Beautiful marble cake! Entire sapwood edge is soft but not punky. A fingernail can push into it a little bit in areas.

Fiddleback & amazing color! This slab has endless possibilities.

Qty: 1
W28316 specs:
44 lbs. 55-3/8″ x 21-7/8″ (down to 16-1/16″) x 1-7/8″

Myrtle Burl 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 to our yard, and carefully milled in our facility. Myrtle wood 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, 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 blank is unique, making each project a one of a kind. Burl or fiddleback is a rare quality that very few Myrtle trees possess.  Myrtle wood is great for the beginner and expert alike.

This lumber was cut from a large colorful log with exquisite cluster burl and fiddleback! This wood is kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Boards have been selected for the maximum amount of figure.  There is 90% or better usable wood in every board. Some may have up to 3 or 4 checks that can be anything from hairline to 2-3” in length. There are some knots present with checks (look for black dots or larger black areas in photos. These are either pin knots or bark incursions). If you are not able to work with a few natural defects please refrain from this highly figured batch. Some of this material is ideal for bass or electric guitars. If you are an instrument maker and are curious to know if a piece fits a certain size template please call us at 1-541-273-0925 and we would be more than happy to check!

Beautiful goldens with violet streaks. Hairline surface checks. Live bark edge. Ships to USA only because of bark or we can charge an additional $20 to remove the bark by hand for international shipping. 6″ end check. See picture for large bark incursions. Beautiful color, figure & grain. One bark incursion in center has some soft spalting.

Buckeye Burl

W26889
$350.00
Qty: 1
W26889 specs:
17 lbs. 36″ x 21″ max. x 2-1/8″

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.

There are a couple tips on the board that are fragile. This piece has blue and green colors in it.

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.

Could work great for anything from bass and electric guitars to table tops and shelves.
