Some recent burls I have picked up. If you have time to visit my website or read any of my posts you will know I do not “harvest” trees. I just work with people to put stuff headed for the landfill/ burnpile to good use. I got most of these burls from firewood cutters. There is some hard maple (on quilted wood, cool), catalpa, redbud…
The burls are uncut in the picture. I do some turning-bowls, pens, make fishing lures… I have mentioned before I had a computer crash and lost a ton of pictures, kinda puts me at a handicap for showing projects. I guess I will have to get busy building something. I do have a picture of a mantel clock frame I made for a guy with some spalted maple burl and curly maple. (he wanted to put the clockworks in, I just made the wood part so that is all I have a photo of)
A couple of my lures, made from curly and curly/spalted wood.
