Wooden Burrs

Cut and shaped wooden burrs for making into resin jewellery, coasters, tiles and more!

A burr (or burl if you're from across the pond) is a tree growth which has caused the wood to grow in a deformed way. Usually this is from an injury to the tree or a virus, fungus or disease. This means that the wood is full of small knots and therefore looks very attractive when worked. Burrs are often highly prized and are sought after for use in furniture, sculpture, art and jewellery. 

Our burrs are harvested from Australian Mallee (eucalyptus). The wood is richly coloured (compared to the non burred wood) and comes up a treat when polished. They are robust, stable and hard and can be polished with danish oil, a polyurethane spray or even a thin layer of resin.
