Hey everyone, I was asked by a few of you from my blog “How to find legal burls” “once I get them how do I cut the burls”? Well I just made a short vidio on how I cut to the burl in the context of a bowl or hollow form blank. Please coment and add if I don’t cover it well.

It’s been a busy month in the shop.I finally refined my design to the point where I was happy with it. I’ve added a very gentle curve to the outside of the top piece as well as the two side pieces. For the bottom, I shortened the feet to 3/4” and shortened the lower drawer section 2 1/2” tall I’ve used sliding dovetails for all of the joinery for the main section. They will provide me peace of mind if the piece is hung on the wall. First time with slid...
