Vitex Burl
 
Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, its rarity also adds expense.  It is very sought after.  Burl wood is very hard to work with hand tools or on a lathe because its grain is twisted and interlocked, causing it to chip and chatter unpredictably.  This “wild grain” makes burl wood extremely dense and resistant to splitting.
