Like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." A burl in rosewood, or any wood, can be any shape, any size. We've seen raw hardwood burls from the size of a softball to the size of an easy chair. The grain inside can likewise be -- well, anything goes. There are formations such as "birdseye," "fiddleback," "curly," "flame," "quilted," or "spalted." But our craftsmen have NEVER seen anything like the ROSETTES on the piece called "Jaguar." It is inconceivable that this could be a natural formation, but it is.
