Come to think of it, that’s not that far off from my love life in general over the last year.
Anywho, in case you’re still not 100% sure about this term, let me show you a few other examples of its sheer awesomeness:
You can find examples of this in finished form, with the wood’s unique grain swirl patterns as the focal point, or you can get a raw slab, complete with all of its knotty, gnarly ends. Another cool thing I learned is that burl wood is actually found in many different species (there are multiple online listings of walnut, oak, redwood, and maple burl). I personally like the raw form and would kill to have a coffee table with a big hunky chunk of this in the center of the room.
I like it especially when the wood is balanced out with industrial-style legs. What I don’t like is the price tag to get one the size I would need to build a table like this myself. So, despite my enamored state, I’ll have to love this burl-y guy from afar. For now.
How about you? Make any new discoveries of your own lately? Love to hear ’em.
