We have collected some of the most highly figured pieces and improved on Mother Nature by stabilizing them by injecting an acrylic resin. This virtually eliminates the biggest problem with burl turnings, checking and cracking due to expansion or contraction. In addition, they have been dyed a range of vibrant colors.
We recommend taking precautions when working with spalted wood, such as using adequate dust collection equipment and wearing a personal respirator or mask.
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.
