Five on Friday today is...Burl
Burl wood is a type of fast growing, abnormal growth found on some trees. Burl wood grows because the tree has experienced some sort of environmental stress or damage. This is often caused by either a fungal attack or an attack by insects. In order to celebrate this wonderfully beautiful and unique wood here are 5 things made from burl wood for Five on Friday.
