Let’s discuss Burl since it has been mentioned a few times. It is that large bump that you occasionally see on a tree. The belief that when the tree is under stress from insects or other environmental issues a burl may grow to help protect the tree. Burlwood is highly sought after by Makers due to the incredible textures within the grain. It looks pretty ugly from the outside, but I do have a theory about wood. It is the uglier the log the more beautiful will be the internal wood. Burl is no exception. If you like this Large Cherry Burl Fruit Platter take a look Natural Edge Platter.
