Mark, They look great. Im gona want at least 1 or 2 of these!!
Are you going to split some of them into scales?
These came from some friends in Western Australia with a small mill.
Here are some photos from when they were collecting the burl.
After that I had them cut blocks and send them because shipping from Australia is so darned expensive. I couldn't afford to have them send big slabs.
Littleroundman is correct about everything being red.
See the ground where he is cutting, red. That is a white t-shirt he is wearing, now red. (just teasing about the t-shirt)
Here is what he ended up with.
He must have a really heavy duty suspension in that old van because each slab is probably a couple hundred pounds.
This wood is very dense and heavy.
OHHH MY!!! Thats crazy.. Its gota be the COOLEST set of burl pics I have ever seen!!
Yeah, I gota have a couple pieces of that burl! I now have got tool envy by the way. That Chain saw is also quite impressive!
ar, ar. grab testicles. chainsaw envy.
I'm looking forward to seeing, and hopefully buying, after the blocks have been stabilized.

Oh no... a set of scales using that wood on my cleaver would look real nice...
