This 2’ by 4’ madrone burl I found about 4 years ago in Portland in a junk shop, along with heavy raw edge maple slab for the legs. I talked the owner down to $60 for burl and $35 for maple slab. I used my router sled to level madrone burl and the rot in the maple slab dicktated the shape of the legs. All is finished with BLO and several coates of poly. Thanks, Bob

Nice use of the wood. I really like the way the legs highlight the burl growth.
