Amboyna burl, one sample of gallery grade.  Color from dk. red to lt. orange.

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.
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!

All pieces are DRIED completely. Very rare, no new stock of this quality is normally seen on the market. OUR price is well below the board foot price of other offerings of similar quality which are normally about 1.5 times the price for pieces that have rough edges and cracks, which may not be dried. We'll hold prices as long as we can.
Notes: High density pieces.
Please order by letter below. If two grades are listed then it is between those two grades, for example, GG/GG+ means better then GG but not quite as good as GG+.

All pieces are dried completely. Very rare, no new stock like this in many years coming in-- anywhere.
Notes: High density pieces. For number 1, we have had this piece for over a decade and I cannot remember if I superglued a check in the end grain or not, so it could have a glued check, but it is sealed so well I cannot tell for sure. Please order by number below.

Any pieces not shown below are previously sold.
