Return of Burl

I’ve been seeing more and more burl crop up lately in interiors.  If you don’t know what burl is, it is when the round knotty growth on a tree produces a grain that is misshapen (usually caused by some sort of stress for the tree).  The burl is then cut off, polished and and made into a veneer and applied to furniture and accessories.  Burl can be quite expensive because of its beauty and rarity and is also hard to work with because the twisted grain causes it to chip and shatter easily.  Once the process is complete, though, it makes the loveliest furniture!
