Following the various publications, I saw many, used frequently, burl for the lathe.
Here I had never paid attention to this, but we algarrobos a parasitic plant, which produces something similar.
So I started campaigning to get some (the vast majority is rotten inside), then take two of the best and cutting with chainsaw.
And there I emerged the first problem … what to do? How to approach the project and grab the lathe? It was something new and I am just an apprentice lathe. But I set to work and after several hours I get a result. It really was something I liked and satisfaction.
I have several more and I have to continue experimenting with them.
The wood is black algarrobo. Finished is tung oil.
