Canxan Negro Burl
Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, its rarity also adds expense. It is very sought after. Burl wood is very hard to work with hand tools or on a lathe because its grain is twisted and interlocked, causing it to chip and chatter unpredictably. This “wild grain” makes burl wood extremely dense and resistant to splitting.
During Rocky's recent trip to Central America in October 2013 he tells us more about Canxan Negro Burl. It can also be called Ironwood Burl. Rocky tells us about the texture and coloring of this very unique burl.
