You bet I do. but you kinda have to be hear to go thru it. Lots of digging for wood in my bens. The last pic it looks like one big pile of wood but it is actually 2 bens that have turned in to one pile. Any ways it is all burl.

Greg, this is a wonderful stash of wood that you have to work with. I can honestly say that I would enjoy working in there.

Hey Greg. It looks pretty messy, but I considering it is in a garage and the nature of you business it really could be a worse. Looking at all those burls makes me think that even the smallest offcuts would still be useful for decorative inlay work. What do you do with those?

I can’t show these pictures to my wife, cause this is where my shop is headed, lots of chunks of wood waiting to get turned. I don’t even go looking for wood to turn anymore, it just shows up from people who want to help. They also know my rule, if you give me a bunch of wood, you get some bak (turned, of course). I green turn some and seal others in order to dry it and save for years to come.
