Maple burl bottle stoppers are intensely figured squares. Solid big leaf burl, these are often the best portions of larger squares that were trimmed due to a defect of some kind. Dry and great for multiple turning applications. Maple burl bottle stoppers may also have spalting in them. Big leaf is one of the most sought after species for the stabilization process. These little gems are excellent for home stabilizers as they take resin very well. Beyond bottle stoppers themselves, these blanks are perfect for a number of other turning projects or handcrafted small items such as rings, ear rings, pendants and other jewelry. The minimum size of these blanks is 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 2.5″. As with all burl, minor natural imperfections may exist.

Our Process

Our unique way of pressure cooking and kiln drying the wood allows for the least amount of volumetric shrinkage and maximum natural stability of each piece. This proprietary process was developed over 40+ years; many of which was through simple trial and error. Today, through our process using specific temperatures, psi and durations of time, we consistently produce some of the straightest, internally sound and beautiful burl and figured hardwood blanks on the market. Our large manufacturing customers truly depend on this consistency for their pool cue, guitar or knife blanks. Try one of our products and see how we compare to others.
