Buckeye Burl has some of the most dramatic, indeed fantastic figure of any burl wood. Buckeye and related species are native to the eastern and western United States. Much of it comes from California, hence the botanical name of this species, Aesculus californica. African Blackwood is the premier detail wood for woodturners.

About the artist

Eric has been turning wood professionally for over 25 years, with a continually-evolving aesthetic and range of technical skills. His work has been featured in some of the finest art and craft galleries in the country. He regularly exhibits in juried shows including CraftBoston. His newest work features many turnings from two extraordinary woods: Buckeye Burl and Australian Burl caps, with their eye-catching natural edges. He has also begun creating mobiles turned from Buckeye spheroids—exceedingly time-consuming to make, but yielding fascinating woodturning in motion. His finishes are a source of special pride, and after sealing woods that require it, his finish is a mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax, mixed in a very gentle solvent. The result is a lustrous but fully transparent finish, soft and pleasing to the touch. ...Read MoreRead Less
