the Buckeye Tree

Recommended Posts

I'm from Ohio and I wondered why I have never heard of any one using Buckeye wood in any project. George Washington loved the tree because of the flowers. Of course there are the Ohio State Buckeyes. After a bit of research I quickly found out that the way Michigan Wolverines describes a buckeye is true. "a poisonous nut on a worthless tree"  :lol:

Yesterday, in a Peter Engler design studio in Branson, we saw a live edge buck eye burl slab made into a table. It was sorta arc shaped, about 40" long and, in places, maybe 20" wide. Rather light in color...like red oak...with real dark inclusions. Very striking. Steel hair pin legs. $1800!
