The Manitoba Maple will occasionally form large burls at the base of the tree. The grain colour and patterning can vary drastically from tree to tree as well as within the same specimen. Careful finishing and staining can bring out these grain patterns dramatically with this type of wood. It was applied here as a golden undertone to warm the overall look as well as bring out the depth of the grain.
This piece was turned on the lathe and is approx. 17" in average diameter.
The price is $385. Cdn
