Natural Amboyna Burl from SE Asia. Vivid red/orange coloring and very good burl figure with large eyes and attractive grain patterns and figure in between the eyes.
This block is natural wood. It has not been chemically impregnated (stabilized). Amboyna is a hard, dense wood that is suitable for handle material without chemical stabilizing.
This is old stock wood that is suitable for use after allowing a little time for the wood to acclimate to your location.
It is common for dense hardwood burl to have hairline checks, open eyes or small voids. If any occur within your project area they are an easy fix with a couple drops of thin CA glue. Just apply ca glue and then finish sanding. A little extra work but will make for dramatic results.
