Burlwood is a tree growth where the grain of the wood has grown in a deformed manner. Commonly appearing in trees as a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch, it is filled with small knots from dormant bulbs. The result of this deformation can be environmental or human caused and is often referred to as distressed wood. The end results of such stress to the wood are beautiful swirling patterns and grain lines not seen in normal wood.
This means that jewelry boxes made from burl wood are typically eye-catching and lovely pieces that come in colors that you may at first think couldn’t possibly be from any kind of tree that you are familiar with. Pieces made from burl wood, no matter which type of trees the burl came from, are conversation starters in their own right and some boxes like the Gran Morea Jewelry Chest are so beautiful and unique that you might want to use it as the focal point of your bedroom or front hallway.
