Thuya Burl is by far some of the finest burl I have ever worked in my life! These WoodScents Thuya Burl AromaLog Diffusers are of the highest quality wood species I have made yet. Thuya wood (pronounced twee-ya) is from the Thuya tree in Morocco. This biblical tree is from the cedar family and is exclusively native to Morocco. This highly praised conifer grows only in the forests of the Atlas Mountains east of Essaouira, the beautiful coastal town famous for its ancient and contemporary history, museums, art galleries, world music festival, and above all for its Thuya wood craftsmanship. Thuya wood was highly praised by Romans and Greeks, and its oils were used in religious rituals and ceremonies. Thuya trees reach maturity over many decades. Still the praised part of this tree is not the trunk, but the burl buried in the ground. The burl has a deeper color, a more concentrated aroma, and a fascinating grain.

Today these burls are very scarce and hard to locate, extract, and transport. High demand over the centuries has greatly reduced the Thuya forests and looking for underground burls is something like sifting through sand for grains of gold. Moreover, most of these burls are very small, therefore the fact that most of the items made from this luxurious wood are of a small nature. Another hindrance is that burls generally have large splits and defects that need to be cut out. When luck strikes, and a large solid burl is found, it is bid on by artisans, and is sold to the highest bidder. Burls are moved from mountainous areas on mules and donkeys as they are the only form of transportation suited to the task. All that having been said, the real value of the Thuya handcrafted goods is in the highly skilled artists who intricately design Thuya burls into breath taking masterpieces. It is a lot of fun for me to turn, finishing it is the best part. Seeing it in all its glory sleek and stunning makes all the extra work all worth it!

Had a great guy over to help with ideas for the shop, site, and such and one of his was to put together a wood species weight and density chart. Felt it would be a great idea for all to know where their unit stands and what to look for in another.
