Box Elder Burl Knife Scales - #5020

  • Triple Dyed
  • Stabilized
  • 0.35" x 1" x 6"

Grain is straight, with a fine even texture. The growth rings are usually faint and non-distinct. Easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Turns, glues, and finishes well.

 

Tip: To make this wood really pop visually, use Tung oil and apply it to your finished handle. Keep applying it for 30 minutes allowing the Tung oil to wick into the wood. (Stabilized wood will absorb water or Tung oil in this case like a sponge) After 30 minutes, stop applying it and let it dry. As it dries, excess oil will weep out. Wipe this off to save you some sanding later. Let it dry a couple days and sand it and buff it up with some wax. You will get some 3D look to the wood that is really nice. I would avoid using pure Tung oil. It takes weeks to dry. Find a wood finish that lists Tung oil as its major ingredient. The rest will probably be some polyurethane and evaporants. This is good. The evaporants will help the Tung oil cure a lot quicker than it would without it. The poly will just help seal the wood against moisture and dirt.
