BEAUTIFUL piece of wood and turning. You’ve done the wood justice.

newbie here …what’s the difference between a burr and a burl ? I’d never heard the term burr applied to wood until I joined this site . Beautiful turning no matter what you call it though !

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Very nice turning, I really love that ring it sets it off.

Will light shine through .025 maple? You could hang it from the ceiling with a bulb in it.

Have your say...
