* A little information on what a burl is - A "burl" is an abnormal growth that typically grow on the outside of the tree and usually near the tree trunk. Since each "eye" of the burl could have grown into a tree branch, this causes the grain to grow in every direction at the same time. A burl typically also has bark inclusions, voids, as well as other things making it difficult to turn. A burl also does not form on most trees so they are all very rare, yet contain the most desired wood and is worth all of the extra effort to turn, as you can see. A small piece will often go for $10 to $50.
* Mesquite wood is native to the southwestern US.
