« Part 7: Timber for a cutting board? Part 8 of Tasmanian Woodworking... series Part 9: For lovers... »

A number of show attendees purchased burls last weekend… they dropped by to have some value added to their pieces..

This shows how simple the TWC makes flattening a burl… and as you know it is one of the most difficult procedures to accomplish without tear out or damage of some kind…


This is not the case using the TWC… so simple … so effortless .. and so effective..
