Wood from the burl of the Caucasian walnut tree is among the most coveted types of timber in the world. No two pieces are the same. Yet they all feature a captivating and exclusive aesthetic. The wood’s vibrant and playful structure contains intense reddish browns and a pleasantly harmonious grain.
There is always great anticipation before we cut open a walnut burl. Our burls are mainly sourced from old, solitary trees that were felled to make way for new roads. The rough exterior of the burl makes it impossible to predict the breathtaking riot of color held within. This type of wood is a true wonder of the natural world.
Walnut burl is often used as a decorative trim on the dashboards and gear sticks of premium cars, although usually only in the form of a thin veneer. The best way to bring out the grain structure is through high-gloss lacquers and polishing.
