Black Ash burl tends to have strong, high contrast birds eyes and fiddleback grain patterns. One side of a blank will have strong birds eyes and the other side will have fiddleback patterns. Black Ash Burl tends to have light to dark contrast swirls throughout the piece. The darker the wood, the more chatoyant the piece will be when finished. Most burls tend to have bark inclusions. This is easy to turn and finishes well.Blank size is 7/8 x 7/8 x 5"
