Maine Burl Tables and Bowls offered by… Twin Maple Outdoors!

12961521_10208117180560453_4115717893410899753_nThe Craftsman…Rodney has been an outdoorsman his entire life. As a Master Maine Guide, he has always loved sharing his passion for the outdoors and now through his wood works comes a form of natural beauty, passion and talent. Each masterpiece is formed to capture the essence of Maine.

Maine Burl Bowls and Tables are for people who love trees, wood, and appreciate having a very special piece of wood art. These natural treasures are primarily for artistic display, both visually and for the feel of the wood texture. The tables serve a practical but yet elegant addition to any natural decor. Burl Bowls are not intended for frequent practical use, although their finish is food safe and some folks have used them for serving or displaying food. The burl tables are exotically beautiful… They are mounted on special select drift wood that has been naturally aged in Maine’s freshwater lakes and ponds. Each burl is specially selected and slow dried for at least one year to reduce checking and cracking. Each piece of wood is entirely unique and special providing a true natural treasure. Products are made from indigenous wood such as Cedar, Oak, Rock Maple, and Birch.

How do I purchase one?

We will be selling the pictured items exclusively through Twin Maple Outdoors Lodge and also through inquiry. Each item is sold on first come first serve basis. Ordering for “Like” style products may be ordered. Pricing will be available in the near future at or by request at: http://[email protected]. Thank You!

What is a BURL?

A burl results from a tree undergoing some form of stress. It may be caused by an injury, virus or fungus. Most burls grow beneath the ground, attached to the roots as a type of malignancy that is generally not discovered until the tree dies or falls over. Such burls sometimes appear as groups of bulbous protrusions connected by a system of rope-like roots. Almost all burl wood is covered by bark, even if it is underground. Insect infestation and certain types of mold infestation are the most common causes of this condition.

The New England Fishing and Outdoor Expo – In Review

What I experienced was the best show I have ever been to: The New England Fishing and Outdoors Expo!…

It’s ALL due to family and hard work of Daniel Kenney and his crew Mike Green, Mark Burgess …. This year, everyone at the show put a huge effort in and I can say that I was very proud to be associated with such professional, kind and motivated people. We work, play and support each other in our journey. It’s not where we are going it’s certainly who we are going with that matters. This show was a huge success and I am sure from here forward it will be known as New England’s Premier World Class Sportsman’s Show!

THANK YOU to all of you who support and love us. If it wasn’t for our Sports we would not be here.
