The complex flowing figure of the wood
Like a Russian nesting egg, the two main drawers of this box hold removeable drawers inside, which hold the hidden little compartments inside them. Burls are large knoblike projections or bulges formed along the trunks (or sometimes limbs) of trees. The wood tissue within the burl is extremely disoriented and often contains numerous bud formations. The resulting figure is quite attractive and traditionally has been used in small articles such as bowls and turnings. Design each box to take advantage of the spectacular natural features of each piece of wood by carefully “reading” each rare and unique burl. Hand-crafted with the use of a band-saw, then sanded and finished by hand, these puzzle boxes are more functional art than puzzle.
These boxes are so unique that they are sold as one-of-a-kind items. Choose from vases, bowls, candleholders, custom-made tables, coaster-boxes, business-card holders, doorstoppers, romantic ring boxes and more. Most items can be enhanced and custom designed with laser engraving for individual and unique tastes. Virtually any image can be transferred to our fine wood surfaces.

Exquisite Birdseye Yellow Cedar Bowls made from a very rare type of burlwood.
