How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches.

I still have a little bit more of hollowing it out. I also plan on sanding the inside and figure out how to make the figure pop out visuall...
