         Burl wood is difficult to turn because of its convoluted grain and tendency to fracture. Burl wood for small turnings like wine bottle stoppers generally survives the process better if first stabilized. During stabilization, resin is drawn into the wood structure while under vacuum. The resin is cured with heat and imparts strength and density to the wood.
