Griffin Exotic Wood



Amboyna burl, one sample of gallery grade.  Color from dk. red to lt. orange.

Amboyna Burl



Grading system:
gallery grade plus (gg+)=outstanding highest figure with burl eyes/rays over 90% of the piece on two faces.
gallery grade (gg) = Very high figure with burl eyes/rays over at least 80% of the piece on two faces.  Each piece is striking.
gallery grade- (gg-)= High figure with burl eyes/rays over 50% of the piece on two faces.  May have very small bark inclusion.
turning grade (usually left unmarked)= Burl eyes and/or some figure.  Still very beautiful.
If there is any sapwood on your piece, it will be noted or pictured below unless it is just a tiny amount on an edge.  Sapwood often makes for great contrast!

Be aware of some vendors claims of dry wood, it seems to be a very common claim for many woods we have tested to be completely wet after we buy a piece to verify claims of dryness. Our pen blanks are always dry, but other pieces are marked on the item if it is truly dry (below 12% moisture). This wood can be a lot of trouble to dry in thicknesses over 1".
