Got a nice hunk of burl from a friend at the woodturning club. Had some extra time today so I wondered what was inside the tree. This is 5 ” wide and 4 ” tall. Spray laquer finish, much prettier in person.

Thanks Ed H. for the burl (from NJ Woodturners!)

Bob. That’s a fantastic piece of wood.

Great turning.

Nice! Beautiful character in that Burl wood, and the turning came out great.
