Spaulted Sugar Maple Burl 1687 (aged 18 months)
Each carved burl is a unique piece. When carving, we strive to follow the naturally grown exterior form to achieve a balance between the natural exterior and our smooth carved interior.
16L x 13W x 7H
In its raw form, this sugar maple burl was originally a creamy white both inside and out. We buried it in the ground under wood shavings for 18 months, to age and black spaulting lines and a grey toned exterior. Once aged to our satisfaction, we carve, dry, sand and finished the burl over the course of a month.
