Maple Burl
« on: July 12, 2016, 10:48:20 AM »
I have recently milled and dried (<3%MC) some of the many Burls I have. The pieces in this listing are all Maple and 1.5x1.5x8 (length is +/- 1/8") except #s 18 and 22 which are 7.625" and 7.5" respectively. As stated, all blanks are bone dry and there are no cracks or checks from drying. $7 per blank of your choice. I can also stabilize them with Cactus Juice for an additional $9 per. Shipping will be USPS Priority. A small flat rate box will hold three blanks and is around $6.75. Regional Rate Box A can hold up to 12 and at around 5 pounds would be about $7. Payment through Paypal. Not sure how well your device will pick up the numbers on the blanks so for reference, they are numbered by column then row; top to bottom, left to right. 1-11 in the first column, 12-22 in the second, 23-33 in the third. I have a significant amount of air dried burl remaining that I will be milling up and finish drying in the near future which includes Maple, Ash, and Sweet Gum. If you have any interest in these, let me know and I'll get to them when I've got the time.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE: 001, 003, 006, 007, 009, 010, 011, 013, 015, 017, 019, 024, 029, 030, 031, 032, 033

Here's a piece from this lot turned round with some BLO applied:

Vince, I got your blanks stabilized. Sent them out today, estimated delivery is Monday but I'm not so sure I'd believe 2 day priority from NC to MO. I'll text you the tracking number when I figure out where I put the receipt.

Any chance you still have a chunk or two of this Maple Joe?

I am interested to hear if you got any more of these going too Joe. I have really enjoyed turning them and seeing what is hidden inside!

Is this "burl" or "spalt"? I am confused.

Depends on the chunk. Many have both. I texted Joe and have not heard back from him.

I still have plenty... and several more burls to mill.

It is burl. There are many pieces which have spalting and/or ambrosia as well.

(I obviously heard back from Joe on text )

Let me know when you get more stabilizer Joe, so I can do some more picking to have stabilized. I understand if price increases for material causes a price increase of stabilized blanks. Thank you!

Vince

Sweet.  I'll send you a private message.
