Default Looking for this burl blank

This is called Gray Box Burl. I'm not sure where I picked this up at. I've had it for over a year and never considered it to be very unique. Until recently when I searched on the type and saw it turned. What I have pictured here will be another faux cigar. This wood is similar to malee burl but of a less red color. I really like it and would like to find some in larger blanks than 3/4".

Yes it does look very much like Mallee burl. Almost the same color and consistency.

Keim Lumber is about 1 hr away. They are in the middle of the Amish Communities in Ohio, and thus cater to a variety of customers. I will check in with them tomorrow, and if the have some of this in stock I can putter - on - down and get some for resale on IAP.

When done, I'll check in with Dale first as he inspired this thread.

Be back tomorrow !

Just me.

Mark, I was looking for something larger than the 3/4" but others here could likely use that size. I wanted to see if they had something in a turning stock that I can cut up.
Their sale is Wednesday through Saturday of this week. I was thinking of making the trip Saturday. My brother mentioned he was interested in going.

Hello all,
Please forgive my ignorance, but what is meant by “faux cigar”. Is that a cigar as in pen style or a real cigar?
My curiosity is piqued.

Thank you
