Patterns In Nature: Burl Wood

P1100259

On a visit to Pal Alto, California, I found this piece of Burl Wood in a picnic area.

This is a close up of the pattern in the wood. The natural design caught my eye.

Since finding this piece of wood, I’ve learned Burl Wood is the toughest part of a tree and many wood workers like to use it to make jewelry, unique boxes, and other items.

Have a great day!
