Hi all, yep the hands are still sore!!!
I hit the gnarly underneath with a wire brush to clean it up so I can get a reasonable finish into it.
I have roughly levelled off the top of the burl with my trustee arborteck grinder and bored a couple of dishes into the top with the idea of having some type of plastic container sitting in there to catch the overflow of any watering.
The top isn’t quite flat and although it doesn’t really matter that much, I am sure it will be great after I get the belt sander onto it.
The legs are going to be made from some offcuts of western red cedar that I had lying around and are going to be in a frame with Japanese joints on each corner. Hopefully I can get the frame to actually insert into the bottom of the burl, which is what I would like if possible
