One of my favorite kinds of posts. A few shots of the face of the cuts would be nice!!! This might be a nice way to pick up a little cash. Hint, hint.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Sir that is one big piece of fungus and I’ll bet it will make one pretty table. Good luck sir and thanks for sharing it with us.

A hint for photographing grain, especially rough cut stuff, is to throw a little 95%+ rubbing alcohol on it. It wont add water while drying and will make the grain stand out.

I would also love to see some face shots of that burl! Grate score!

-- I only WISH I could do this for a living. Problem is I don't want to sell anything I make!

Welcome to LJ’s, if you need me to take some of that wood off your hands, I am happy to help. Can’t wait to see what some of this look like when they become tables.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
