Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy!

I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots.

Thanks

WOW…you find the most beautiful burls…. I vote for some turning blocks….that would make some awesome vessels….Table slabs are good too….I just finished a coffee table from some black pashaco – I’d love to make one from a slab instead of cobling the tops…

I am not a social networker….but to help a fellow LJ I will dust off my old facebook login (will have to have them send me a new login….LOL).

Great new page….flashy….loads quick….great job.

Wow is right, Greg. That slab has a gorgeous color and graining. If you are interested in a vote I would cast one for slabs as well. It would be a shame to block this up and loose all that character that is in the slab.

Greg,i would vote for some box stock- 4/4”! Beautiful wood. Let me know if you have pieces I could buy that would make boxes. With burl, it doesn’t have to be continuous pieces- wrap around grain.

Hey Greg, how about loaning my that machine. I have a couple of burls to slice up. Would need a big postage stamp though. LOL
