    Nice work. It never ceases to amaze me what nature provides us. The grain pattern is excellent.

    Thanks mfisher (can never remember your first name). That's what I like about turning burls, the more cuts you make the more natures beauty is revealed!

    I am going to have to get your contact info so I can do burls also. I still have the 5x5x7 drying. Or do I need to have it dry before turning??

    I usually rough turn it, stick it in a bag of sawdust for a couple of months and then finish turn it. Cool thing about turning burls is that if they warp or crack it usually makes them look better! It's been a while since I sent that one to you so I'd go ahead and turn it and see how it turns out. I imagine it should be dry by now.
