This walking stick holder is made from one single piece of Burl Wood and then adorned with Sterling silver décor.
Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. It is sought after by art collectors, furniture makers, artists and wood sculptors. There are a number of well-known types of burls and these are highly valued and sliced into veneers for furniture, inlay in doors, picture frames, household objects, automobile interior paneling & trim, musical instruments, and woodturning.
Burl wood is very hard to work with hand tools or on a lathe because its grain is twisted and interlocked, causing it to chip and shatter unpredictably. This "wild grain" makes burl wood extremely dense and resistant to splitting, which made it valued for bowls and mallets.
After sourcing the precious Burl wood, the piece took another month and a half to complete.
