How could you put a wet plant pot on that wonderful chunk of dead plant material :)

Very nice piece. I agree with snowdog, I don’t think I would put a wet plant pot on that beautiful wood…..

Great work and spectacular wood. That burl is really light in color, is it walnut? I have some unidentified burl with the same orange type color (4-1/2X24X16 sheets of veneer).

Well, that came out good! I like the burl figure. It really adds some uniqueness to that top!

the veneer is elm carpathian burl. the flash must have made it look a little orange but is really in not. little lighter than the walnut.
thanks for the nice comments, there are good to hear

Very beautiful wood burl! It must have been hard to work? Premium job any way you look at it!
