Turned from nature's burl wood. Burl is a grain characteristic that happens in many types of wood.
Burl wood results from harvesting a tree or a portion of a tree that has a burl. A burl is a growth on a tree formed from un-sprouted bud tissue. The burl forms large, knobby looking growths on the base and trunk of the tree. Stress caused by injury, fungus, virus, or insects creates intense grain patterns. In addition, rapid growth in burls causes further stress and pressure on the wood.This item is made of burl wood and rhodium, black titanium, fountion ink.
