Time to discuss Burl as it has been mentioned a before. It is the large bump that you occasionally see on a tree. Many belief that when a tree is under stress from insects or other environmental issues a burl may grow to help protect the tree. Burl wood is highly sought after by wood artists due to the incredible textures within the grain. The burl looks pretty ugly from the outside. I do have a theory about wood. It is the uglier the log the more beautiful the interior wood. This is a scientific link to Burl https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burl

How To Take Care of Wood
Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water and if necessary use only a damp cloth
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore luster. I like beeswax or walnut oil.
