Burl Furniture

Burl furniture is a trademark of true handcrafted furniture. Burls have been highly prized by artists for the unique grain patterns that are incorporated into handcrafted burl furniture.

What is Burl?

What is a burl and where does it grow? Burl wood is a type of fast-growing, abnormal growth found on some trees. It grows because the tree has experienced some sort of environmental stress or damage, which is often caused by either a fungal attack or an attack by insects. Many of these burls are hidden within the tree’s root system. These hidden treasures can have a variety of patterns such as lace burl redwood, birds-eye maple, redwood burl, curly redwood, marbling or black walnut curl. This unusual and intriguing natural wood is highly desired by wood turners, gun makers and furniture craftsmen around the world.  It can be found in the form of veneer, lumber, turning blocks and natural live edge wood slabs. The artist at Littlebranch Farm uses these natural wood burls to craft one-of-a-kind custom burl furniture. Our artist is a master craftsman that specializes in working with natural wood slabs and creating live edge rustic tables, twisted juniper lamps, rustic beds, rustic fireplace mantels, and rustic vanities. Working with the natural free form live edge wood slabs, the master craftsman combines them with different styles of bases. One style is a natural root base creating a raw and organic natural look. Another style  is more medieval or simple rustic, using smaller burl slabs for the base. Antler bases create a western style and handcrafted metal bases create a contemporary rustic base. We can design the perfect base to complete the look you want. The warmth and beauty of natural wood furniture  is a complement to any home decor. The designing and crafting of natural wood furniture is only limited by what the mind can conceive. The true hidden beauty is within the burl, the focal point of handcrafted burl wood furniture.
