Product Information:

We have carefully and selectively cut a small quantity of 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" pen blanks from one of the most exciting wood species that we have ever seen. Expensive yes, but the results will be worth it. Thuya burl is fairly firm and dense with a high oil content, but tends to be brittle. Its color varies from a rich, lustrous golden brown to nearly black. The eyes, perfectly round, are scattered about in some burls like the figure in bird's-eye maple; in others they are grouped as islands. An exquisite wood used for inlays, small boxes, and turnings.

  • Thuya wood is an exotic hard wood found only in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco
  • Mentioned in the Bible and used since the Middle Ages
  • This wood has been coveted since Roman times
  • It is highly prized for its rich colors, varied textures and uniquely clustered eyes
  • Thuya Burls grow on the roots of trees under the surface of the ground
