Hey all my friends. Just spent about 20 hours getting this Spalted Maple Burl from a guy in Sweet Home, OR. Nice place! It was one tree and about 10,000 lbs. 6” diameter burl at the butt. Beautiful colors. Grade A burl. Went over the scales at 25,000 gvw and I tared at 13,300. All to say I got lots and I am grateful. Spent 12 hrs just to load it. My team did not have the word “QUIT” in their vocabulary. Grueling work but good work. thanks for looking!Gregwww.OregonBu...

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

Hey everyone, Just an update. We signed the contract for a new TV show coming out this early 2014. I can not say what network it will be until they start advertising the show.
