After a little reading I have run across the name of Dirk Boelman, “proably the most talented and productive designer and developer of fretwork patterns today”.

We cut this tree down in Feb and just got the video done. We slabed the burl and the logs in to counter top blanks and table blanks. We used my 088 stihl with a 36” and 72” bar.
