It is great honor to harvest an old large burl. This 7 1/2 foot diameter maple burl had to be taken out to make a house pad. It had grown around a large rock. Cutting was carefully executed. The burl was lifted out by an excavater. It is now at the design studio waiting to be cut into table slabs. The wood has deep color variations and dramatic grain. Truly a jewel of wood.
Daniel and the BURL
The base of a tree taken out for a house pad. All of our wood is salvaged, ( previously cut, standing dead, or had to be taken down). This wonderful maple, old and burled had to be taken down for a house pad. It already had rot inside and was at the end of its life.
