This cherry burl comes from the U.P. Michigan, and is full of figure. I used turquoise and lapis lazul to fill the voids, and several coats of wipe on poly to bring out the shine. I must have done it right this time, becuase the most frequently asked question about this piece at art shows is “did this grow into the tree naturally?” That is exactly the look I was going for.
