           Burl wood is difficult to turn because of its convoluted grain and tendency to fracture. Burl wood for small turnings like pens generally survives the process better if first stabilized. During stabilization, resin is drawn into the wood structure while under vacuum. The resin is cured with heat and imparts strength and density to the wood. Dye can also be introduced during stabilization.

           I've separated the layers of blue dyed box elder burl and natural box elder burl with thin segments of wood veneer.

           Box elder is native to North America.
