heres a 8 in by 4 in high maple burl botom with great fiqure and charecter. i used a steamed madrone burl for three off them, which gave it a great contrast, it realy was a joy making, was my first of this kind. Its going to be used as tortia holder at firend local mexican restraunt, the others are made of black walnut burl, maple burl, sometimes all soak madrone for up to year, this develops a more purple town to wood. I like how it makes it look. I did two difernt lid types, one type incorperared hadle as one piece. the other two i used manzanita great for handles. the lids fit just write, the pieces are displayed on a black walnut table I made for mom. i cant wait to get them in restraunt.
hope you enjoy

very nice !! I’ve tried turning burl and found it was like trying to turn a rock. Does the soaking make turning burl easier or is it only for the color enhancement?

That’s beautiful wood and beautiful work. Congratulations.

Great work. That is a great shape and the handles look good. Looks like you have had some fun on the lathe.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
