In September 2003 Halifax was hit with a Hurricane Juan that resulted in major devistation to hardwood trees in our city. A majority of the trees that were down in the South end of Halifax have burls so my son and I went on a clean up mission to see what we could find, over the course of the week we collected over 20 truck loads of burls. We dried the burls and now offer many products made with this wood including Handcrafted Pens, Wine Bottle Stoppers, Oil Lamps, Trinket Boxes and bowls.
