A rare, exotic hardwood that grows in Southeast Asia and has a fragrant aroma. It can vary in color from yellow to golden brown to red, and is generally considered excellent for both turning and finishing.
Amboyna Burl wood is a very rare wood that is harvested from the dead roots of felled trees, the patterns in the wood appear as the wood dries over time creating a truly stunning patina. Amboyna burl, like most burl woods is very light and not very dense compared with other exotic hardwoods, therefore it is best used sparingly on a cue to ensure the correct balance is achieved.
Amboyna Burl is not a species in it’s own right but is harvested from Narra and Padauk roots, therefore there is no weight or hardness data for this wood.
