Burrs (or burls) are naturally occurring calluses containing irregular grain growth which can sometimes be found on elm, oak and occasionally other species of tree. Although oak burrs are readily available, the devastation caused by Dutch elm disease has made burr elm far more difficult to obtain. The natural beauty of a polished burr needs little additional decoration, indeed, carved detail tends to get lost in the wild grain.
