• Boxelder Burl Dugout and One-Hitter

These wooden dugouts are made from Canadian Boxelder burl! They are the finest of this species I have ever seen! The burl eyes are bright and vivid with vibrant red tones here and there! also has green hints as a result of spalting. Full of figure and life surely to be admired by anyone.

Box Elder is a great wood for turning as the grain is fine and the burls have exquisite detail, giving great depth to any area with figure.  Box Elder is also known as Manitoba Maple and American Maple in Russia. This fast growing, short lived tree grows to heights of up to seventy feet with a maximum trunk size of about three and a half feet. There is much debate as to what causes the beautiful red staining that can occur in this wood. It is often referred to as a Maple with a “royal blush”. The wood is soft, has excellent gluing properties and is suitable for boxes, turned articles and other fine articles.

Typically the sapwood of  Boxelder is pale white, sometimes with a yellow/green hue similar to Yellow Poplar. The heartwood is grayish/yellowish brown, frequently with red or pink streaks. The red stain is produced by the tree’s natural defenses when wounded. It’s thought that this compound is meant to inhibit the growth of a fungus that commonly colonizes the tree. Much of the reddish coloring becomes a more subdued pink or brown/gray upon drying.

Seldom used or available in lumber form, Boxelder is Occasionally harvested in small quantities by hobbyists or specialty sawmills. Lumber exhibiting reddish pink heartwood streaks are considered most desirable. Normally prices vary for moderate slabs but pieces this figured and with so much burl are extremely expensive even for me.
