Cocobolo Burl - Got some great pieces here! I bought a good sized block of Coco burl back in 2009 and sold a few pieces here and used a bunch to make some AWESOME pens but now I have been away from selling pens for 5+ years and have been slowly selling off my collection (hoard) of good wood. So, now I have some pieces here that might interest you folks.
Here is without a doubt one of the finest Burls in the world. Absolute gorgeous figure going all over the place, layers of color, loads and loads of character blooming out of this fine piece. These have been sitting around in the open air since 2009, oxidizing/getting darker, so now it’s hard to get good shots of the character on these pieces without cutting them down and therefore reducing the size. I have sanded them a good bit to get some of the color and grain to show, some are hard to see, BUT it’s there!!


All are appx. ¾”sq and bigger Length is listed below.

Group #1 $25ea Available:1 2 3 4 6 7 8 (SOLD; #5)
¾"sq X 5" long

Group #2 $25ea Available:1 2 3 4 6 7 8 (SOLD; #5)
1-3 = 7/8sq x 4” long
4-8 = 3/4sq x 5"

HRB – Honduran Rosewood Burl – Some great pieces here, plenty of grain movement in each of these with several that have some nice color variation with the Sapwood. Sapwood is solid not soft and punky, even has eye rays moving thru some of them.

SOLD; Group #1 All 7/8sq x 5" with Sapwood
OR
#1-6 shorts
#5 all sapwood
7-10
#8&9 will probably be all sap once turned, still plenty of character!

SOLD; Group #2 All 3/4sq x 5"

SOLD: YCB – Yellow Cedar Burl – This burl comes from the Yellow Cedar trees that grow only on the West coast of Canada up toward Alaska. Slow growing, tight grain with some great eye clusters and rays that shimmer and wind their way thru the blanks. These are sure to dress up any kit you use and command high $$$

These are not cheap, if you want I will ship in a padded envelope for $2.00 shipping cost. (International based on Country)
U.S. = S/H is $6.00 USPS F/R Priority

You might want to read the CITES treaty--we have had Cocobolo shipments seized when entering other countries.


Just a word to the wise!
