Mappa Burl Flitch B1219-B1232. Mappa Burl is a new wood species for us. It has a beautiful golden color with consistent burl figure throughout. Most boards have at least one great burled bumpy natural edge.
A beautiful Bosse log from West Africa. The heart wood is a gorgeous gold to sienna in color, while the sap is a stunning white. Heavy pomelle/quilt figure weaves through most of the log. ~ Hearne Hardwoods Inc.
Two Tasmanian Blackwood Flitches (Acacia melanoxylon). Tasmanian Blackwood, in case you don't know, is in the same family with it's much sought after "cousin"- Koa (Acacia koa); Blackwood, however, is much more accessible, therefore you get very similar color and grain patterns without as hefty of a price tag. We often get calls from people looking for "Acacia"- Acacia is a family name not a specific wood (no matter what the flooring and design magazines tell you ;) ).
