    Random Photos from the Burl Shop

    I thought I would post some random photos from here.
    As the days go by I will take some photos that may or may not be interesting.

    This is Larry cutting slabs from a big Tan Oak bunion. Tan Oak is not really an Oak but a member of the Beech family.


    Here is one of the slabs. Hard to tell from the photo but when dry and sanded there will be very flashy figure kind of like wrinkled velvet.

    I love it when you show pics of your work place Mark. I have got to get out to the left coast and do a tour from south to north, stopping at KKF oases along the way.

    Looks like it would be a fun place to hang and enjoy some of the local mushroom varietals.

    He got in an argument with a raccoon last night. Just scratched up. The big dummy.

    Everything is weird here. Even the people. One end of the building is a gallery, the other end and the 2nd floor is where my boss lives.

    I pulled some of the Cascara out of the drying room this weekend and messed around with it a bit.
    The more and more I look at this wood, the more I like it.
    This photo shows a snack tray I made for my wife to use at the computer. The bigger piece I will use to make a sign for a coming Knife Show.

    This is the first time I have come across Tan Oak pin burl.
    Usually it just forms bunion type burls.
    Looks like this will have spaghetti grain and red eyes. That is if I can dry it successfully.
