Additional Information: Cottonwood is a deciduous tree that grows up to 45 yards tall. Cottonwoods are exceptionally tolerant to flooding and erosion and are  found throughout the US especially in riparian zones. Sometimes Cottonwood trees produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Cottonwood Burl I use comes from near Sacramento California and has exceptional figure with lots of Birdseye and burl inclusions that gives the handle a unique texture.

Buckeye is a medium-sized deciduous tree that primarily grows in the Midwest and lower Great Plains. The wood is rather plain and yellowish-white. However, Buckeye also grows in the foothills of California where it often produces a burl. The burl is a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots and swirly figure. California Buckeye Burl also is usually spalted. This spalted Buckeye burl wood which was in the process of rotting has a bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi makes a lot of the yellowish-white wood turn bluish gray which makes Buckeye Burl some of the prettiest woods in the world because it has lots of swirly figure, birdseye, and two-tone coloration. This particular piece has wild figure and complements the Cottonwood Burl.
