Amboyna Burl



Grading system:
gallery grade plus (gg+)=outstanding highest figure with burl eyes/rays over 90% of the piece on FOUR faces.
gallery grade (gg) = Very high figure with burl eyes/rays over at least 90% of the piece on two faces.  Each piece is striking.
Burl Grade: formerly called gallery grade- (gg-)= High figure with burl eyes/rays over 50% of the piece on two faces.  May have very small bark inclusion.
turning grade (usually left unmarked)= Burl eyes and/or some figure.  Still very beautiful.
If there is any sapwood on your piece, it will be noted or pictured below unless it is just a tiny amount on an edge.  Sapwood often makes for great contrast!

These are pieces of amboyna burl (all GG+) that have been stabilized and then dyed. The results are unique to each piece as there is no way to really predict how they will look during the process. Truly vivid color and the figure is outstanding. Prices are far lower then you would expect to pay for amboyna burl that has eyes virtually everywhere like these, even without the stabilization cost (which is substantial--approx. 40% of the price in this case is for stabilization). Please order by number below.

These are pieces of amboyna burl (all GG+) that have been stabilized but NO dye was used. Basically this is the natural color after they were stabilized. Prices are far lower then you would expect to pay for amboyna burl that has eyes virtually everywhere like these, even without the stabilization cost (which is substantial--approx. 1/3 of the price in this case is for stabilization and the related costs like loss of material due to warping and cracking in stabilization). These pieces are nice clean pieces ready to use. Please order by number below.
