Wood from Miles
I specialize in wood from Alaska that I find myself. Many woods here are soft and will not take a polish or work out well on projects, so I stabilize it. While stabilizing I often add dye to enhance the natural pattern. I usually state what is all natural, stable and stable -dyed. I seek out interesting patterns in wood from drift wood piles, or fire burn areas, so work with naturally dead, usually from homestead land. Wood is brought in by boat or snow machine far from normal traveled roads. I am the source, and handle all the process so can offer good prices. I work with wood in my art, so can answer questions about my wood and it's various uses. Alaska birch, cottonwood, alder, and willow are most commonly used in the order mentioned. These woods have little commercial market, so are not commonly found on the market. This makes the wood unique one of a kind.

4.5 x 3 .75 x 1 inch. Stabilized and dyed. Very good pattern of burl with birds eye and sheens. Almost a ‘gem,’ grade for pattern. Could be cut and turned on a lathe for pens, used for knives, pendants rings. Even scraps from this would have a value.
Poplar wood burl block 8.5 ounces
6 x 3 x 1.25 inches. Stabilized slight dye. Has interesting sheen all the way through to both sides. Great for knife handles (more than one set I think) or turn on a lathe, carved, etc. Slight damage on one end that is uneven and has some bark effecting half an inch that may work out in a project but may have to be avoided. Reduced price.
