BURL - ARMORITE MDF CORE
3/4" – 4x8 Oak Cluster Burl - A3 - MDF Core

This Oak Cluster Burl MDF panel has Oak Cluster Burl veneer on the face.

White Oak Burl veneer has a coarse grain with tight clusters and a very swirly pattern. The brown and tan colors blended with pockets of burl produce stunning book-matched faces with an “old world” or masculine look. As with most burls, it can be pricier but can really make a stand-alone piece.

Burl veneers have a beautiful and often wild grain pattern. They are often denser than the wood in the trunk of the same tree. Burls occur as a growth on the tree, either as something like a tumor or sometimes as a reaction to damage, such as the loss of a branch or damage to the bark. The tightness of grain and pattern in the wood of burl veneer varies from tree to tree, and even within the same tree. Burls are valuable because of their rarity and unique beauty, and because of their exotic look.

Burls are often put together in “tiles” or squares. They are often installed “book matched,” meaning that at the intersection of four tiles, the tiles will make a pleasing matching pattern. There may be plugs where some of the burl literally falls out and it can be too big to fill with putty. Higher grades of burl wood veneers are called sound grade with a uniform burl throughout the sheet. Because of the rarity of burls, compared to other types of veneer, and due to the labor and skill required to create a good-looking sheet of burl veneer, prices can be somewhat costly.
