Real Burl

To finish up the discussion on burl, Pierre has collected a few images of real and woodgrain burl.  Pierre Finkelstein of Pierre Finkelstein Institute of Decorative Painting explains more below.

ABOUT

As previously discussed in the post on the definition of burl, burl is a rare find as it is a deformity of a tree.  Therefore, it would make sense that a painted burl would be a smaller area.  For example, an entire door wouldn’t be made of burl.  Burl is found on furniture, marquetry, and other small areas.
