Manzanita Burl-The root of a woody haparral plant indigenous to California mountains, Manzanita's unique colors and unusual shapes provide an ideal medium for craft persons to display and sell their work.. Manzanita's one-of-a-kind look makes these bases the preferred choice among buyers for craft projects, florist, fish tanks, reptile cages and many other use’s in the garden or home.Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, one prized for its beauty by many; its rarity also adds to its expense. It is sought after by people such as furniture makers, artists, and wood sculptors. There are a number of well-known types of burls (each from a particular species); these are highly valued and used as veneers in furniture, inlay in doors, picture frames, household objects, automobile interior paneling and tro, and woodturning. The famous birdseye maple superficially resembles the wood of a burl but is something else entirely. Burl wood is very hard to work in a lathe or with hand tools because its grain is misshapen and not straight. Some burls are more highly prized than others, including ones originating in rural areas in central Massachusetts, northeast Connecticut, and as far south as Philadelphia. Some types display an explosion of sorts which causes the grain to grow erratically, and it is these burls that the artist prizes over all other types. These spectacular patterns enhance the beauty of wood sculptures, furniture, and other artistic productions. Burls are harvested by a variety of methods. Special attention should be given the manzanita burl which is native to California for its beautiful knotty appearance.
