Made this Maple burl knife block for a friend of mine. It turned out to be a bigger job that I imagined. But it was a fun project. Finished with danish oil and briwax. My first knife block.

That looks fantastic. The curved design is great and the figure in the burl popped really well with the oil and wax. I’m about to finish some maple burl knife scales (stabilized)... do you think the same danish oil and wax finishing will work well?

GOOD LORD MAN!!! That’s nice. There is no material like wood. Just endless varieties of beauty. That is just supafine! I stayed up till 2 this morning looking at redwood burls. I think I have a problem.
