This is a wall mounted piece of naturally colored Buckeye Burl wood, “imported” from the State of Oregon. It can also be adapted to be the top of a table. Buckeye Burl is a root burl formed by a fungus or foreign matter that invaded the root-ball of the tree. When harvested it is not uncommon to find rocks, bullets and live or dead snakes who have taken up a home in the voids inside the burl. WINDSWEPT is a slice of the burl which was dried, de-barked, sanded and then finished with several coats of lacquer.
