These stabilized burls drill and turn like the regular exotic wood blanks, but pack a lot more eye candy than any straight-grained wood blank. I saw this one at the store in Orange, CA. It was one of a few in the bin that had streaks where the dye had not penetrated evenly (most were more evenly colored). The blank was a pink color, but I was pleased as I applied the finish to see the color darken to a rich red wine color.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
