Buckeye (Aesculus spp. (A. flava and A. glabra)). Buckeye is a rare native US hardwood; Buckeye burl can feature reddish brown knots, with light to dark gray swirls of discoloring, light-on-dark knot clusters, and unique, almost black discolorations. Buckeye has a fine, even texture. Grain tends to be straight or slightly interlocked. This piece is in its natural color, and hails from Northern California.
