The beauty of burl…..

You see them out in the woods. Weird looking growths hanging off otherwise perfectly good looking trees. At a quick glance, they might be a bird’s nest or a cluster of leaves. But hidden inside can be a treasure of nature’s perfect artistry. There is no way to tell until a blade breaks the gnarly surface. The grains are intense and unyielding. The craftsman must allow the wood to guide his motions. There are stories being told if he is listening closely. Each story and piece inherently unique and rare.
