Nice grain Steve, and nice color. Dye? We call it Arbutus here and I have some big chunks from a tree that overhung my shop. You’ve got my interest here. maybe some otherwise firewood will be saved.

No dye used on this Paul.Just some mineral oil.I find it hard to even look at peoples firewood.I find that the uglier a piece of wood is on the outside, the more beautful it will be on the inside.

Beautiful burl. The hole in the side makes it look a little like a painter’s palette. Burls are my absolute favorite thing to turn.
