Additional Information: Red Beech grows on both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Generally it is found on lower hills and inland valley floors. The wood has a quite distinctive reddish color and the burl has beautiful large birdseye figure. The Red Beech Burl I use came from a well-known wood turner on the North Island. This gentlemen collected unique wood pieces for over 30 years and I was able to purchase a few of his best pieces.

This Oak Burl is from a species of oak called White Oak. White Oak is native to North America in the eastern and central United States and eastern and central Canada. White Oak has plain figure but sometimes the tree produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes the wood highly figured. This particular piece has radical figure and provides a nice contrast to the New Zealand Red Beech Burl.
