maple burl

to me having the opportunity to harvest your own wood is as enjoyable as turning the piece. i haven't bought timber for turning in years, and i especially love turning burls, so spending the time to find and drag them out of the woods is a great feeling. this is a red maple i took down on the property i hunt on! she was a beauty. weighing in at around 250 lbs to 300lbs. awesome grain pattern what looks like checks and cracks is actually the grain. c
