    Here I marked the slab how I wanted to make the cuts.
    This way the stripes in the figure will go across the spine of the blocks, and the faces will show the bubbles and eyes of the burl figure.

    Then I cut a straight edge for the faces of the blocks.

    Next I start cutting the blocks.

    One of the blocks.

    The wood is still damp from being outdoors in the weather so now they will go into the dehumidification kiln to complete the drying before I trim them up and send them to be stabilized.
