Sorry, I checked our stock, and it seems this was consumed without marking off the available list. We always have interesting Buckeye Burl in stock, and most of it is not listed in the Wood Bank. I hope to resurrect the Wood Bank at some point.

Hi Mica a general question about buckeye burl. Is it considered a tone wood or mainly used as for cosmetics? I seem to recall the piece you showed me on my visit being lightweight.

It's light, and all those colors you see are actually wood rot/fungus. So no, not really a tonewood, is my understanding.
Plus, they have to fill it with hardeners (superglue?) to make it durable enough to make an instrument.
