View Full Version : Wild woods roots
Got in the woods, and made some nice discoveries:
These are root burls, very hard wood, seasoned, as the roots were pretty old, and great looking:
The pictures do not really honor them, the look better than classical briar root.
The wood is still to be identified.

J-M, I'm pretty sure that those are not banana palm burls...
Thanks Keith, that definitively narrows the search ;)

I'd even say it's from a tree that can grow in France.
With a part above the ground and part beneath the surface. Maybe even some green stuff hanging on its branches during certain seasons...
Seems the bush is an evergreen.
Whatever, it is not bvery important, wait until I post a pict of the knife i did with it today, you'll see the brand does not matter at all. :D Superb effect, whatever it is.
Great burls really.

Outstanding work as usual JM, First rate.
I especially like the handle shape, and the finish looks awesome.
Thanks Chad, Juniper it is.

The Juniper barks makes a nice tinder when rubbed together, it fuzzes a bit and takes a spark nicely.

Are you willing to trade any of those? Pm me if you are! :biggthump
Dave, Let me first check a few of the bits I have and extract a few more, answer at the end of the week if you do not mind. ;) Need to check first if it is very scarce, scarce, or easy to find. I suspect very scarce by now.
