    GOT BURL?

    Hello, my name is Randy and im a addict. A burl addict. They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. LOL

    So yea, Thats just to funny, Some of you already have had a chance to get to know me and my obsession through threads on this forum and others! I am a BURL JUNKY. and Im proud of it! I've spent countless hours scouring the globe (via the internet) searching out the rarest and most beautiful piece.. And still even with enough burl to make knives for the next 10 years, spend a couple hours a day on average seeking ut that next amazing piece!

    I would like to start a galley of some of my favorite pieces. and some that are still available. This will give you guys a chance to see some different species and possible find something that screams your name.. If you see a piece you cat live without. or want on your next custom knife. PM me! Im always happy to work with you to either make your knife. Or willing to part with some of my stash..

    WARNING Im gonna warn you one time.. Burl and its beauty and mysterious patterns are addictive. If you find yourself all of a sudden wanting to buy a chain saw and cutting the neighorbs tree down.. to get to that burl.. Its time to stop looking at this thread and seek professional help... (call me) lolol I know how to do it without getting caught!

    LOL Just joking. I havnt cut a neighbors tree down in weeks! .

    Really the reason for this thread it 2 fold. I get to show off my collection and also to possibly take a custom order or sell off a couple pieces.. That way I can continue to feed my addiction!

    Thanks for looking, enjoy the pics and please dont hesitate to comment or leave some pictures of your own. I LOVE burl and would enjoy seeing them!

    Im gona start it out with a couple of Ironwood pics,, This species is one of my favorites, Its a very dense hardwood thats got amazing color and figure. But this is not your ordinary Ironwood. Its SUPER BURL! I have watched and waited for years for a chance to score some of this stuff! I swear this stuff is so hard to come by its crazy, and when you do find it, its sold like gold or silver, by the gram. lolol

    Feel free to contact me any time. Thanks for looking and God Bless

    Most of these pics are already uploaded elsewhere on the forum. But I figure why not get them all in one place.. HERE! Enjoy!

    If you have any questions dont hesitate to ask. I love talking about these as much as I do cutting and working with them!

    And a few more, Most of these are from Craig Stevens.. Anyone who has looked for woods for knife making has probably seen Craigs stuff. Its always amazing. Most of these are in my collection still and just waiting for the right knife to use em on!

    Craig is a good friend of mine and my mentor. I have great respect for him.. And owe most of my addiction to him!

    If you want a Amazingly beautiful handle, this is the guy you want to get the wood from! Unless you can talk me out of a piece! lol

    Enjoy!

    Post man dropped me off a rather large box of Craig's burl Saturday, then shortly after, My UPS guy brought me a HUGE slab of Ironwood!!

    Who said there was no Santa Claus?

    Merry Christmas one last time, and a Happy New year, full of wild burly woods!
