« Part 1: Hunting burl was a success! Part 2 of The Burl Hunter series Part 3: Big Big Big Maple Burl! »

Hey Everyone, Just processed some of the spalted maple burl from the last blog (and yes I am using a push stick! LOL). Can I say “CRAZY GOOD”! I think this is the best I have seen yet. I will be cutting this into turning blocks, guitar wood, and slabs. Take a look!

PS My fingers are healing up just fine and thank you for everyone’s comments and concerns. You are a blessing!

The 1st picture is listed on ebay with no bids yet. Starts at $10. Click to see!
