Additional Information: 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 and blueish gray colors. Buckeye Burl is one of the prettiest woods in the world because it has lots of swirly figure, birdseye, and two-tone coloration.

Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder 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 Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah and complements the Buckeye Burl nicely.
