Natural Edge Maple Burl Platter

This is beautiful Natural Edge Maple Burl Platter that is a one of a kind piece.  Natural Edge means the raw growing profile of the wood remains intact and there is an asymmetric edge. Sometimes the bark remains in place and other times it falls off.  You will discover new features each time you look at this piece.   It will surely provide years of enjoyment.  The size is 10 inches by 9 inches by 2 1/2 inches and is food safe.

Do you know what Burl is and why it occurs on trees? Ever notice that ugly bump growing on a tree, well that is a burl.  Highly sought after by woodturner and furniture makers because the grain direction is all over the place creating wonderful patterns. Usually the grain grows parallel to the tree height.  Not the case with a burl.

Care for your Natural Edge Maple Burl Platter

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
