It has been a fulfilling adventure bringing this diamond in the rough to life. So far, this is the biggest amboyna burl I’ve worked on. It took two months gouging and shaping the wood. 1” acrylic glass were used for the two wedges and Iron wood pegs to balance the whole top together. I used acrylic glass as a mock-up top so that my client, his Architect cousin and me could play around with non permanent markers on it to get the shape for its top that will compliment the base. The reflective mirrorized stainless steel base that sits atop a 1/4” powder coated steel plate was my client’s idea so that he can enjoy viewing the beauty of the sculpted burl base on both top and bottom side. You can see the progression of this build on:
