  • Inlaying requires painstakingly fitting small peices of semi-precious stone and metals into the natural gaps in the cut burl. The finished design must then be sanded and waxed many times to create a look and feel that is seamless and natural looking.
  • Burl is a large knobbly growth, common on poplar trees. Burl wood is desired by carvers because, although it is harder to carve, the finished peice has a more beautiful grain pattern as well as being stronger. This makes burl ideal for bowls and boxes.
