Burl is amazing to turn!
I really enjoy turning burl because you never know what you are going to get until it is finished. This is my second burl blank I have done and was just as impressed as the first one!
Finished but not put together yet!

Buckeye Burls
I have purchased several of the stabilized Buckeye Burls and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out.
As with any burl sharp tools and a light touch is required but I love the grain and color patterns.

Awesome but smells of chemicals
This blank while very smelly is beautiful and easy to turn and drill. Will purchase again.

Awesome but be warned
this wood is truly exotic with it's marble look, the finished product is beautiful although make sure to check the wood grain and little burls from my personal experience I wasn't using the sharpest of tools at the time and i hit a knot and it shattered.

My wife picked this blank out while visiting the new Kennesaw Georgia location last week. I was concerned about all of the fault lines and sure enough, there was a big gap right at the end with a considerable amount of brass showing after drilling and gluing up the tube. After sharpening all of the tools I thought I would use, I put a paper towel under the lathe, and collected the chips/shavings/dust that I could and used that to fill the gaps with CA glue, sprayed with accelerator (which created some hard foam) then sanded it smooth. Turned out beautifully.

Stabilized blank turns well, use sharp tools for best results. Have made several pens with Buckeye Burl, always great results.

Making a pen for an Ohio State Buckeye fan thought this would be a fitting wood for this fan.
