Bought this log from a guy how pulled this out of his stream. This is a spalted maple with crotch figure in some of it. There is a 6’ x 36”. The other one is 10’ x 36” these are producing some some nice slabs.

Nice? Nope, it’s Burl wood porn. The only definition I know of wood porn is: Any depiction of wood that causes wood lust when viewed. If looking at this log getting slabbed makes you want to build something, you’re a wood porn addict…

Nice! It has to be a lot of fun harvesting such beautiful wood. Thanks for sharing what was “pulled out of a stream.”
