Like photographs, every burl is unique. There are 4 steps in the procedure of making each burl.


Step  1  Each burl is cut out of redwood from Northern California.

Step  2  The burl is sanded, prepped, and matched with a fitting image. (For custom photos we cut a piece to match your photo.)

Step  3 The colors of the pigment in your photograp is injected into the wood and sealed with a water base polyurethane.

Step  4 The bracket on the back of each burl is balanced by a professional framing company.

No 2 pieces are the same. There is much thought and care that goes into each one-of-a-kind photo-burl.
