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.

During last year’s WoodExpo 2011 at the New England Home Show, we featured a blog on Kevin Mack Fine Furniture. Kevin is located in Malden, Massachusetts and can also be found online at
www.kevinmackfinefurniture.net. The Mack attack is back at the 2012 show with 5 new fantastic entries showing off his creativity and woodworking expertise. The main goal for all 5 pieces was to create 3 color tones in each piece.
Great Burl with Natural Edge
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.
Don't believe the picture
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.
