The kaleidoscopic pattern of swirls common to Big-Leaf Maple Burl makes the species immensely popular among wood turners and carvers, as well as makers of fine furniture, musical instruments, and paneling.
The heartwood of Big-Leaf Maple Burl varies in color from light cream to dark brown and, of course, features a haphazard pattern of swirls. Like any burl wood, Big-Leaf Maple Burl can be somewhat difficult to turn because of its unpredictable grain. It does, however, polish very nicely.
Big-Leaf Maple takes its name, obviously, from the large size of its leaves — typically about 6 to 12 inches wide. The trees themselves normally grow to heights of about 30 feet and can develop several trunks.
