Carolina Cherry Burl & Wenge

This is a stunning piece or relatively rare Carolina Cherry Burl. Carolina Cherry, Prunus caroliniana, has been planted here in my Native Southern California for decades as a street tree grown in sidewalk squares. It rarely lives past 15 years due to susceptibility to pests and disease. However, some trees live to be much longer and they tend to get very gnarled trunks full of burls. Unfortunately, they are being planted less and less due to their hardiness/longevity issues which only means this wood will become rarer and rarer. Occasionally, I have the good fortune of coming across a log and am able to save it from becoming firewood. I shudder to think of all the beautiful burls which have been burned over the years. The hoop is super strong Wenge which is practically impossible to break. - $750.00
