Our kiln-dried Karelian Masur birch scales are prepared with the woodworker in mind, offering a natural, swirling pattern that’s ideal for hands-on crafting endeavours. Straight from the kiln, these scales are ready to be turned into fine inlays, detailed marquetry, or the centerpiece of a unique piece of wooden jewelry.
The curly birch scales are delicately patterned, showcasing the natural beauty of the wood. While we aim for perfection, nature has its own ideas, and you may discover slight bends or unique marks within the wood. These aren’t defects; they’re what make each scale a unique piece of the forest and its own artistry. Thin scales like these are an excellent choice for crafting inlay, marquetry, and exquisite wooden jewelry pieces.

These Karelian masur birch scales are thin and measure approximately 5x45x135mm, though you’ll find some natural variation in size due to the organic nature of the wood. We embrace these variations, as they add to the uniqueness of each piece, making each scale you work with distinct.
Included in every package, which weighs around 500 grams, you’ll receive about 14 scales. This number is an estimated count based on the average size and weight of the scales. This provides you with a substantial quantity to work with, whether for multiple projects or for creating larger, more complex designs.
