Buckeye burl is mainly found in California and is by far our most popular species. It is a great material for both casting and stabilizing, producing a range of beautiful colors and figure. Popular among wood turners, the colors of Buckeye range from pale white to grays, blacks and frequent stains of blues, greens and reddish pink. Voids and inclusions, however, is notoriously common in Buckeye, thus making it difficult in milling dimensional blanks. Be prepared to spend some time in filling these voids with CA glue, mineral or other wood fillers. Although voids and inclusions is common, we at Islewoods specialize in filling them by way of casting. We cast Buckeye in various sizes from pen blanks, knife scales or turning spindles with spectacular results. Check out our range of Buckeye products and you'll see for yourself the possibilities of this versatile wood.
