Madrone

Also known as Strawberry tree or Madrona, this beautiful Pacific hardwood has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Green lumber is unstable until is carefully dried; once dried it has excellent stability. Madrone is hard and fairly difficult to saw, but it is possible to get a beautiful, high polish in finishing. Madrone has been compared to the texture of European Pear wood, even thought to be superior in grain & workability.

Madrone is known as Strawberry tree, Madrona, or Madrone burl.  This is a unique Pacific hardwood that has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Our Madrone blanks are highly burled & figured. Through our proprietary process, the wood has been pressure cooked to relieve tension and then partially air dried.  These pieces are ideal for gallery grade projects and high end woodworking as well as Bass and Electric guitars.
Trees are typically 10” up to 30” diameter and between 40-70’ tall.  Trunks are smooth as silk due to the tree shedding its bark continually.  Logs are rarely straight so lumber over 10’ long is a rarity.  Random trees growing in mixed stands of Douglas fir produce the best lumber as the trunk is long and relatively strait.  Trees in the open are much more bushy with many limbs that will not produce good lumber.  Burls grow almost exclusively underground and must be dug up sometimes by hand and then pressure cooked and milled.  Many Madrone trees grow in areas that have many rocks so our sawyers have their hands full milling around the rocks and dirt pockets that are present in every burl.  This is expensive due to the large number of saw blades that are destroyed and the large amount of labor milling this.

This wood is pressure cooked and has the internal stress relieved in it.  All blanks have been pressure cooked to relieve tension and prevent degrading. They are partially air dried with small blanks having lost up to 70% of their original moisture and larger blanks having lost between 30-50% of their original moisture. Several blanks have surface checks that are typically no deeper than 1/8” usually on one face.  These will generally all turn away. There will generally be surface checks and pin incursions in the burl eyes. Blocks are completely wax sealed; (they will slowly dry through the wax).  Twice turning is recommended but since this is pressure cooked it is stable.  This is exceptional quality material.

Bias cut.  There are a few checks that should mostly turn away.
