This one is simple, a basic form with a live bottom and edge including the chainsaw markings. Why take out tool marks when they accent the piece? There was no burl at that level, I could have gone down a little further to find it I guess but the size was already pretty small. This seems like it created a nice contrast.
I’m really starting to like these lace maple burls – and I’m eyeballing some Australian versions of burls that I could do something like this with with an assortment of colors. Just need to spend the money and get to make it happen at some point.
