Burls grow beneath the ground, attached to the roots as a type of malignancy that is generally not discovered until the tree falls over. Such burls sometimes appear as groups of bulbous protrusions connected by a system of ropelike roots. 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 these are highly valued and sliced into veneers for furniture, inlay in doors, picture frames, household objects, automobile interior panelling and 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, mallets, mauls and "beetles" or "beadles" for hammering chisels and driving wooden pegs.
