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.

Honduras Rosewood is a very hard and heavy wood with multi red and brown colors. Honduras Rosewood has a distinctive rose fragrance. This wood has been sought after hundreds of years ago from furniture and musical instrument makers. Honduras Rosewood sometimes 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 and is sliced into veneers and thus accounts for much of its rarity and price. The Honduras Rosewood Burl that I use has been sustainably harvested. This piece of burl provides a nice contrast to the Cottonwood Burl.
