THIS IS SOLD
I kept passing this burl at my local wood supplier. I wasn’t sure why but I kept looking at it. I took it home and found the images that are as you see them.
A burl (American English) or burr (British English) is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner. It is commonly found in the form of a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch that is filled with small knots from dormant buds. Burl formation is typically a result of some form of stress such as an injury or a viral or fungal infection.
