Wow, what a neat machine! It makes light work of a tough job.

Thanks for sharing how you harvest these burls, Greg. Very interesting.

Darn….I’m green with envy…..wow….what I would do with some beautiful wood like that…..ah well…great job and excellent video….That is one nice tool to play with…..If I had it…folks in my neighborhood would be wondering why their trees seem to keep getting shorter….ROFL.

Remember…if you ever need a place to store some of that wood….just give me a holler…

What a cool video; the wood is gorgeous and the saw awesome!
If you wouldn’t mind please slip a slab into an envelope and mail it up the coast to Vancouver for me :)

I. am. SO. JEALOUS.

:) Awesome machine, and I never knew that about the fragrance of Madrone. Interesting, can’t wait to experience that first hand someday.

Thanks for the great video!
