Can anyone say burl! Burl is back, these are the finest Dugouts I have seen in a long long time!


Product Description

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.

    I ordered this dugout and was truly AMAZED by the beauty and craftsmanship! Ed provided excellent customer service and prompt delivery. Don’t waste your hard earned money on cheap craftsmanship and inferior products on to be left unsatisfied and disappointed. Buy American and from a PRO that not only takes pride in his craft but also treats every customer with respect!

    Really quite good!
    I ordered the Box Elder Burl dugout, and was very happy with the quality of it!

    The grain patterns and color were excellent, as is the build of the box itself – Well put together piece!

    Can you go out to a head shop and pay 20 bucks for a box? Sure. But, you get really poor materials, with cheap build quality.
    These boxes are hand picked, and hand made – and you can tell!

    I liked it so much, I ordered the Buckeye Burl as well!

    Completely worth it.

      Wow my man, I am most grateful for your kind words, they mean a lot to me as do you, thanks so much! I am glad you like what you received and how well you said what you did, you hit the nail on the head, yeah you can go anywhere and pick up a dugout for almost nothing with that in mind you always get what you pay for. These aren’t spit out of some sweat shop in China or India by someone who cares nothing about the person that receives it. I only sell what I would want to buy and stand behind all my work, if you aren’t happy I am not happy and that’s not cool! Am so glad you are and in turn am I! I wish you well and all the best, pls do let me know when you decide to do something else, I will do my best to get you right anytime.
