I was spitting wood for my brother (using a wood splitter and on my knees because of my balance) when I cut into a large lodge pole pine log. It burst apart and a small burl shaped like a v went flying past my face. I picked it up and immediately saw the beauty it had locked inside. It was soaked in sap and I had to microwave it twice then return it so that it was completely dry. But it was well worth the trouble. It is beautiful. The base is paduk and was already cut like that. I also saw its immediate beauty and new it was the perfect base! I finished it with plan Minwax Shellack.
