Here I sit, on a cloudy, cool, uninspiring day in the Mojave Desert and Momma comes in from the mailbox. And Says, “Who do you know in Scotland?” “GEE, JAMIE!” I hollered.
I cut the package open and ….................looky here at what I got!
A beautiful piece of burl made it across the big pond. Now my mind is racing and searching for the inspiration for a project that will impress Jamie. All that comes to mind is Mafe! Where are you when I need you? lol
Wow! What ever it is that comes up for the project, I must leave the natural side as the focal point. Any and all ideas from my fellow Lumberjocks are welcome! So please share your visions for this beautiful block of wood with us. Please keep in mind that I do not have a lathe, so anything else is open to suggestion.
Thank you Jamie. I will sand the large surfaces and rub with mineral spirits to show the beautiful action in the wood and add to this post in a day or two. Thank you again Jamie.
PS…..Mafe, I can’t make a pipe. I gave up smoking 38 years ago this March 3rd.lol
