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. This particular piece has been dyed turquoise to bring out the figure of the Buckeye Burl.

African Blackwood is a dense, shiny wood that often is pure black. This wood is moisture repellant and is used to make: wind instruments (clarinet, oboes, etc.); string instruments (banjos, guitars, etc.); furniture; and knife handles. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Turquoise Buckeye Burl.
