I got this in an assortment and there is no documentation on what the woods are. Most of them I can identify but this one has me puzzled. At first I thought it may be birds-eye maple but it is light as a feather and tears easily when turned. Looks great finished though! I also thought it may be buckeye burl but if so, it is from a tree that was left standing dead and dried up completely.

No need for me to reply, but it is indeed Buckeye Burl 100%. I’ve seen too much if this great stuff for it to be anything else!! ;-D

Thanks guys.
I thought it was that.
I wonder why it is so light and dry.

Does this one look like figured maple?
I don’t like this design but it turned out OK.
