SINDORA BURL (sindora spp.) AND ASIAN IRONWOOD BURL (xylia kerrii)
DRIED over years in our shop!
Notes: We dried these for years. Both are difficult to get truly dried without checking. They have natural slits (sindora)and tiny bark inclusions (ironwood) visible in the photos. We also coated the outsides with superglue (and then sanded the excess off) to add to the stability of these. Both are super hard and beautiful burls rarely seen on the market (and never sold dried and ready for use like these--from what we can find)
No surprises: ALL four sides visible in photos:

STABILIZED and partially dyed orange.
Top quality figure throughout.
If you get an out of stock notice when you have a qty of 1, it is already sold.
not related to Ceylon Satinwood, Pyinma is a completely
different species. We have ceylon satinwood too, email us.
Pyinma has much better figure.
Ash Burl, stabilized
botanical name: Fraxinus americana
Ash grows widely in the eastern half of the USA. Burls do occur, but rarely have the concentration of eyes as seen in those sold below. These were professionally stabilized by kiln drying and then forcing clear resin through the wood at very high pressure. This results in a stable blank that tends to warp much less then un-stabilized wood. We don't expect this wood to be in stock all the time, but occasionally.
Photos have been taken to show figure as well as most major variations in appearance such as natural indents. Prices are based on quality and size.
