Maple Burl Stabilized for Rod Seats (AF44)


Maple is not only a beautiful wood for knife building it also makes beautiful rod seats.   We recover our Maple on the Southern Oregon Coast where the variety of soil types can add color to your knife handles or rod seats.  The wood has unmatched qualities and easy workability. It will make high quality knife handles or rod seats. We personally recover most of our trees from logging site where the trees were being sent to chip mills.  The areas that the trees are removed from are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable wood.  The cool wet air of the Oregon Coast makes the perfect environment for slow consistent growth of instrument quality wood.  We personally stabilize our Maple wood for your knife blanks and rod seats.   

There is one blank 1.5” x 1.5” x 8”.

Our photos are taken two ways.  The first to show what your finished piece will look like and dry to show what the wood will look like when it arrives.  The blanks you see in the photo are the ones you receive.
