Walnut burl slab with lots of burl eyes, swirl and great true Claro colors.
From the largest points, this piece is 26” long, 14” wide and 7/8” thick. One side is flat, the other side has a slight dip where the face is a minimum of 3/4” thick.
A great piece for a small table top, pen blanks or many other small projects. I did a quick layout and you should be able to get at least 40 jumbo blanks(5” long, 7/8”-3/4” square) that will be free of any major defects. You should also get some additional Sierra sized blanks. As is typical for burls, there are some open burl eyes that will need filling.
If you want to use this piece for something other than pens, there are some checks on the edges and some old insect holes on one corner.
$50 + shipping. Shipping weight of 7 lbs.
These photos are not very good. The burl is much better in person.
I still have a lot of work to do on my website but my pen blanks page is up. I also have some of the best burl and highly figured pen blanks around. Go to https://rocklinforestproducts.com/Pen_Blanks.html to check them out!!! PM me for special pricing for Lumberjock members.
