Walnut Burl Tops

MGW Walnut Burl Top!

The raw wood is sourced directly out of northern California.  The wood is either kiln or air dried to very low levels (see listing for details) and is cut, sliced, and sanded by us…in our very capable shop.  The secret to a great book match is to remove as little material as possible.  After all billets are jointed flat and thicknessed…we joint both edges.  Then we use our 30 HP horizontal resaw bandsaw to accurately slice the billets with a blade which is only .038” thick.  This allows us to sand the book matched tops smooth in our Timesavers surfacing wide belt sander while removing no more than an additional .010”.  This process allows for the best book matched tops possible.
