Futo GX - Galaxy Burl
Futo Galaxy Burl stashes are out of this world stabilized burl wood with resin cast accents. The stabilization process hardens the burl wood and if dyes are added brings out amazing natural patters in the wood - some times they look cosmic in origin.
We've created a special numbered set of these pieces, and each one is unique.
Model: Futo GX
Material: Box Elder Burl
Color: blue stabilized with natural red and tan tones
Resin: black and blue layered granite effect
As with all our products, these dugouts are hand-crafted from board-to-box in our own shop on the Canadian prairies. We harvest or source the burl wood and make select cuts, usually carved from large irregular chunks. Our box elder burl was harvested locally. The stabilization process happens in a vacuum chamber where the wood is immersed in a hardening agent with dyes added so as it's drawn into the burl the softer parts absorb more dye, creating new patterns with striking contrast in the wood. After the wood absorbs the hardener it's significantly heavier, then it's heat treated. The process creates an inert block with new properties, with no solvents or residuals, food safe with improved properties - much harder and heavier than the original. For pieces that have voids, we use a second process of resin casting where a mould is made to fit the block, and resin is poured and set in a vacuum chamber a second time. We add interesting things to the resin in some our pieces. The net result are beautiful and unique blocks of wood with an incredible amount of time and care put into each one. When you purchase a galaxy burl dugout, you're funding an ongoing art project - and we thank you for your support - it's been an exploration into new creative processes to create these pieces that push the very definition of a simple stash or case for your vaporizer.
Model GX - due to popular demand we offer this variation of our Model X to fit a thick 12mm glass one hitter. Our glass one hitters are heavy walled and custom made. The GX stores a few grams. Hitters are 3" long and 12mm in diameter with a medium sized bowl. Features a beveled edge so they can easily be twisted or rocked into your stash to load the bowl. Includes a spring to gently pop up your one hitter as you swivel open the lid.
Ships standard with one clear glass hitter. If you would like colored glass, specify one or two color choices in the comments on checkout. We have a variety of colors in stock, and they change all the time.
