If you have never seen it done either no one has thought of it yet or everyone who has tried it has failed. I am sure that not all craftsmen have a free source of wood. A friend of mine is a scaler at a log buying yard, one winter he saved a pickup load burls from hardwood pulp that came in. He took them to a guy who makes bowls for a living. The bowl turner picked out half a dozen that he liked and offered him 20 bucks for the lot. My friend took the 20 and went away discouraged. He then heard of another turner who was looking for burls that guy looked the load over and said I will give you $10 each and take the whole load. My friend came away with almost $600 for his trouble.
