This Wooden Oak Burl Bowl has tons of character with the texture and colors that are unique to oak burl. When you notice a round bump on a tree that is a burl. Most likely the cause is when the tree suffered insert damage or environmental damage and the tree creates a level of protection. Burls are highly sought after by wood workers because the grain patterns offer wonderful finishing opportunities.
