We have allot of hemlock in this area, but I have never seen a burl. Nicely done.

Nice, has a little heavier look, clean sharp edge. Was in town last week but Ma kept me busy so no time to visit!

Great job John. That hemlock burl looks cool. Never tried it.

Thanks fellows, hard to believe that Hemlock Burls were chipped up as scrap. The friend that gave me this one said nobody wanted them, but since seeing my bowls he is looking at them differently now.
