New Burl – Oregon Maple

I picked up some burl to try from another source. This time I decided to try something I haven’t used before, Oregon Maple. It’s more of a rich brown, almost a chocolate brown, tone with the usual swirls and highlights of nice burl. I’ll have a sample pic in a bit, just waiting on the danish oil to dry so I can give it a light buff. Since I was just testing the waters I only have two sets, one 1/4″ thick and one about 1/8″ thick.

For the curious, this wood is from:

Burl Source Web Store

They’re a well known and liked provider of fine woods for craftsmen and in the last couple years have started giving knifemakers some love too.
