$2 burl

I found this burl at a garage sale when I was up north out by my cabin.
I'm guessing its pine. Lots of pine up there.
Just thought I'd share.

Well I can't turn so I was thinking a small table lamp. Not sure yet. It seems old and real dry. I'm guessing the inside is bland.

Edit: after further inspecting it. It appears to look and feel pretty solid. It's got some weight to it.

they can be bland but they sure smell good when you crack it open.

Pick up a used lathe. I bought a new floor model for $65. It's an import.

The pine/fir burls found around here in AZ, while not nearly as large, yield a great figure when sliced open.
Ya probably have to open it up to make into a lamp (maybe not) anyway.
