    That looks like some of the H.R. Giger alien looking wood you get from Australia like sheoak.

    The figure is very similar to what you get with lace sheoak.
    There wasn't very much usable wood from this piece.
    But I learned what to watch for on the outside to hopefully find some more.

    The fellow I got the recent batch of redwood from had piles of whole stumps and other large pieces about 10 feet high all over a vacant lot.
    He recently had to move all the wood to another lot across the highway.
    Now all the wood that used to be on the bottom of the piles is on top.
    He had been accumulating the redwood over the past 25-30 years.

    I need to make another trip out there and spend a whole day digging through the piles.
    No telling what I will find.

    Sounds like a plan. I suspect that being in the Pacific Northwest helps, but you seem to have more redwood burl than any 3 or 4 other dealers combined that I have seen. Cool looking stuff.

    That's because we've got connections.
    My boss was one of those hippies making redwood burl tables and stuff back in the 60's.
    He moved here to SW Oregon from California in the early 80's.
    He has had his burl galleries and wood yard here ever since he moved here.
    Being in the business so long it seems like every wood guy within a 1000 mile radius knows him.
    Whenever any of the wood guys need money they call my boss.
    It also doesn't hurt to be located where all the really unusual burls grow.
