This is one of the larger burls we have received – coming out around 10” in diameter with a mostly turned surface with live edges at the top of the bowl. Several cracks and crevices, lots of unique grain and texture. It was sitting for almost a year, so it’s dryer than some of the other “green” ones we have been turning.
This one was done with the Carter Hollow Roller system and finished out by hand. We REALLY need to increase our tool rest collection to include some far reaching tests and more unique bends.
Next ones coming will be cored out using the OneWay Easy Core rig. – More on that next week!
