Topic tags/keywords: birdseye tiger maple curly flame birch curly cherry

I sell packs of figured wood. All from Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Please email me at bob at bobkloes.com for questions. I use fed ex for shipping, unless you want a pallet load. I stand behind what I sell. All lumber is kiln dried and rough sawn. I will plane it at no extra charge to whatever thickness you want. I normally cut it to 48” lengths for shipping. Prices are for select and better for the most part. Some birdseye is #1 common. All lumber runs random width, 4” to 8” wide. You will get a selection of those sizes. Wider stock is available at higher prices. If you are close to me, you are welcome to stop in. I am close to Green Bay, Wisconsin. I try and ship once per week. I do run a custom furniture business and this is one part of it. Glad to answer any questions. Thanks, bob

Bob,
I love the flame birch I got from you a while ago, but what does steamed flame birch look like?

Hi Fade. Its steamed flame beech, not birch. The mill steams this while kiln drying. It is american beech. After steaming , it is a light red color, almost like cherry. Very heavy, much more grain and has curl figure like curly cherry or flame birch. Kind of a half moon shape figure.

This is flame beech with an antique cherry dye.

Is it as hard to work as the birch? I love the stuff, but it is a bear to hand plane.

This would be about the same. There is none of the figured stuff that is easy. Curly cherry is pretty soft compared to all the rest. The spalted maple isn’t bad. Sorry, I am not more encouraging. bob
