This is a gift for a friend I’m having coffee with this morning. It is from the hard maple burl that was on a tree in his back yard. He brought the burl to me last year and this is the biggest piece I had left from it. It was cracked when I roughed it out and I filled it with black epoxy. But I thought I should finish it last night to give to him today. As I got into it more cracks appeared so I left the wall thicker than usual to show more of the burl on top and to keep it from exploding.
It kind of looks like a segmented piece with nature making the segments!!
It is finished with clear lacquer.
