Burl Walnut is rare and being able to find one is truly exciting to a woodworker.  (A burl looks somewhat like a wart on a tree.)  What makes burl wood so prized is the grain pattern.  Normally the grain pattern is rather straight, but with burl wood the grain swirls with infinity patterns and varying colors.  Because burls tend to be rather small (you could not get a long board from a burl) they are most often used by wood turners to create rare and very prized pieces.  This piece, with its book matched Walnut burl top with inlayed cross-sectioned Walnut shells projects the unity and progression of nature from its means of reproducing itself -nuts- to the adult tree.  This piece, too, is a prized treasure.
