  • Maple Burls

    I have had the good fortune to get some maple burls from a local man who sells them to furniture makers, artists, turners, etc all over the country. Of all the burls I've seen from the locals here, his are the best and most reasonable considering what he's got. I've been told that the maple burls are getting harder to come by and because of that the prices have gone up since last year.

    I must admit that I got quite an education regarding burls and how they are obtained and processed....a lot of work! Hammer but very interesting! Cool

    What he has given me are gorgeous and the first batch I got from him we took to the carving show a few weeks ago and sold many of them. Those that were left went on the website the following day. Last week we got more and I finally got all the photos taken and posted on our website.

    While I have not personally burned on maple burls yet, I am looking forward to trying them out (I pulled out one piece that was calling out to me). I have several friends who have done wonderful woodburnings on them. If any of you have seen Lynda Eaves work, you know that she does some amazing wolves and other wildlife on maple burls. They are a bit harder to burn on than basswood but with proper sanding they produce wonderful results.

    I have posted photos of EACH piece individually on our website. These are mostly slabs that are suitable for burning, clocks, etc. If you are interested in seeing them, here is a link..... http://www.nedraspyrography.com/Maple_Burls_&_Figured_Wood.htm
