This is by far the most unique burl I have ever come across. It is a black oak burl and when I cut into it the burl was white meat with black black bird’s eye. This was about 24” in diameter and weighed 140 lbs. Sold it to a guy in New York. Still impressed by this one. HE has no lack in imagination!!!

Greg, I can only imagine the figure and coloration that this would have had. I am sure it went into a gorgeous project.
