"The wood was of very high quality, with high figure and nice long pieces. ..." - Malcolm (more)
LATIN: ILEX OPACA ORIGIN: NORTH AMERICA
Holly is a domestic wood that is excellent turning, carving, and inlay. Very rare due to the slow rate of growth and small size of the trees that are harvested. Must be cut in winter to avoid blue-stain or graying of the wood. Holly ranges in color from white to ivory. Holly has a very close irregular grain with little or no dicernable figure. We have extremely limited stock of Holly and it is offered in #1 Common only due to knots and some end checking.
