Wood Masur Birch (Figured)

🪵 Good to know

Note that all wood grading is subjective. We have graded them a certain way based on the overall quality, and they don’t always correspond exactly to the above definitions. Most people would agree that each higher grade is better than the last grade.

Masur Birch 35-47

Masur Birch is a highly desired patterned wood from Finland and Belarus mostly. Recent research (2017) has reversed the previous belief that these patterns are caused by beetle attack. Studies have shown that the trees that have these patterns are genetically different from those that don't have patterns. This is a process of natural growth in the tree rather then a response to insect attack. The quality of patterns in these pieces is far above average and required very selective cutting techniques to get this kind of appearance. Notes: Piece 36 has some rounded corners.

Masur Birch 22-34

If a piece shows two figure grades ie: 3A/4A it means that it is in between those grades and the first grade listed is closer to correct. Masur Birch is a highly desired patterned wood from Finland and Belarus mostly. Recent research (2017) has reversed the previous belief that these patterns are caused by beetle attack. Studies have shown that the trees that have these patterns are genetically different from those that don't have patterns. This is a process of natural growth in the tree rather then a response to insect attack. The quality of patterns in these pieces is far above average and required very selective cutting techniques to get this kind of appearance. Notes: There may be a long-term problem getting more, the source country Belarus is in a political crisis.

Grading System for Masur Birch:
1A: Some figured areas in the piece
2A: Some very good figure, at least on one side with decent figure on some other areas too
3A: Excellent figure on at least a couple of sides and most other areas have some figure.
4A: Excellent figure on at least two sides, very good figure elsewhere
4AFine: Incredible figure like 4A, but has some areas of figure that are ultra small, very hard to find.

Note that this wood comes from Belarus (not Finland for many years now). Because of the conflict with Russia/Belarus and Ukraine there may be long term supply problems. If you want it, don’t plan on waiting too long or you may not see it again for an extremely long time.
