    I don't know if they have anything that fits your bill, but this company specializes in faux wood wallpapers: http://www.fauxwoodwallpaper.com/

    Well they have two different types of Burled Maple so they probably have what he's looking for too...LOL Good Luck Stuart!

    Thank you for the suggestions but this doesn't answer my question because I need a WALNUT BURL wallpaper not the maple. Thanks

    Can I ask why you need this very specific look?

    I am restoring a 1911 railroad observation car used by President Warren G. Harding. He used the railcar in 1923 for a trip across the U.S. but died on the trip in California. The railroad car had Burl Walnut Wood in the railcar, but was riped out in the 1930"s. Want to restore that look. Need the help in locating wallpaper or contact paper to put up in the railcar. The railcar is located Georgia. Thanks for the help.

    That Link that Steve gave you above, says that they do custom requests...

    Here's another option, but I think that will be tough to get just right. Check into the custom requests above. Sounds like a really cool project. Keep us updated.

    Sorry, I am on a roll with suggesting links, then not actually attaching the links. Here is what I was talking about above - directions for faux finishing in a burl woodgrain style: http://www.paintinganddecoratingconcourse.com/articles/Burl-Woodgraining.html

    Try this site: BensonWalls.com They do any print on removable wallpaper. And they are located in Alpharetta so that may make it even easier for you.
