Product Information:

Big leaf Maple Burl (Acer macrophyllum) has figure consisting of swirly, unpredictable grain patterns with light to dark variations of cream brown to dark brown color. Natural edges, bark inclusions and internal voids may be present and are not considered defects (in fact, they usually add character to a piece). Big leaf maple burl can be somewhat difficult to turn because of its unpredictable grain. It does, however, polish very nicely. It can create interesting turnings such as pens, bottle stoppers, bowls and ornaments. It is also great to cut into slices for clock making, or thin slabs for beautiful box tops. Air-dried.

  • Unpredicatable grain patterns

  • May have Natural Edge

  • Finishes well

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Comments about Big Leaf Maple Burl 2.5" x 6" x 6" :

    I've purchased a total of 5 of these big leaf maple burls now, two in store, three on line. Unlike other reviewers my experience has been all positive. All five pieces have had generous natural edge. All pieces were solid, no knots, no voids, and all curly burl pattern. For this price on dried and ready to use burl wood, you just cannot go wrong. Just my experience.

    Comments about Big Leaf Maple Burl 2.5" x 6" x 6" :

    I bought this because i wanted to turn a bowl with a "natural" edge. What i received was a square piece of stock no different than any other stock with four table saw cut edges. Somebody needs to change the photo. Won't buy Turning stock from here again.
