Description

Hand carved oak burl pendant necklace. Brass top with dangling good luck charm embellishments.

I located this burl with my father last year in Western Massachusetts where I walk my dogs. It was low, and small enough for us to handle without heavy machinery. I made my father a bowl with the rest of the material.

Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. It is sought after by furniture makers, artists, and wood sculptors. There are a number of well-known types of burls (each from a particular species); these are highly valued and sliced into veneers for furniture, inlay in doors, picture frames, household objects, automobile interior paneling and trim, musical instruments, and woodturning. Burl wood is very hard to work with hand tools or on a lathe because its grain is twisted and interlocked, causing it to chip and shatter unpredictably. This "wild grain" makes burl wood extremely dense and resistant to splitting.
Burls are harvested with saws or axes for smaller specimens and timber felling chainsaws and tractors for massive ones.
