I turned these out of 5 pieces of hard maple burl that I could not throw away. They are random shapes that I could get out of the small pieces but one has a little more work. It is a flying saucer shape with 6 holes drilled in it and filled.
They are finished with EEE and Shellawax.
The 4th shot is of the pieces I cut off the burl as I bandsawed it round to be a bowl or something like that. I see today the I have not started to turn it yet and it is cracking big time!!
The last shot is the burl as it was dropped off at my barn. I burned the top and bottom of it as it had thousands of ants in it!!
Is there any proper way to approach a burl to get the most yield out of it??
