Just finished slicing and dicing a cherry log burl. The burl was pretty cool in that it was wrapped all the way around the long that was about 11”D. Couldn’t decided exactly how I wanted to cut it. Thought about making just 1 hollow vessel by just hollowing out the pith, cutting in half long ways and making 2 large bowls but decided the safe way out and split it in quarters. Got 4 pieces with just outstanding figure with just enough punky stuff to make it character rich. Couple pieces are 8”-9”H x 7”-8”D and the other is just about 1” smaller. Also make 1 piece with the burl on top that about 6”H x 5”D. Can’t wait to finish them. A little clear Watco will make these really pop. Next year’s Christmas presents.
