Description
This ball marker is made from a Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) burl. Burls are deformed growths on trees caused by some sort of stress, usually an injury or infection by a fungus or virus, but the exact mechanism remains a mystery. In Redwoods the burl will usually start forming at the base of a young tree. For whatever reason axillary buds near the base begin to multiply but never become elongated to become shoots. As the tree gets older the mass becomes enlarged, growing together into a twisted, knotty mass of wood. Burl wood from any species of tree can produce spectacular wood grain patterns and is highly sought after by woodcraft workers, especially turners. Burls are also very popular in the making of veneer wood.

This particular burl produced a common Redwood pattern called ?Lace?. To me it looks like many tendrils intertwining with each other, giving a very 3D effect. It?s as if you?re looking below the surface of the wood at its different layers. The wood is very lightweight but also very stable and resistant to cracking because of the interlocking nature of the burl fibers. This marker is 1-3/8" in diameter and just over 1/4" thick. Weight is 2.18 grams.
