    World's Best Burl.......maybe

    It might be a bit of a stretch to call this the best burl in the whole world. But it sure is nice.
    This is an old slab that had changed hands 3 times over about 50 years.
    It had a dark dusty patina that made it hard to see what the wood was going to be like.
    I knew it would be good. But I had no idea it was going to be this good.
    This is when I started cutting it up.

    Next I took one of the strips and sanded it to 120 grit and sprayed it with a light coat of lacquer.

    Turned at an angle and the look changes.

    Then at 180 degrees it is different again.


    This has to be my favorite of any Redwood Burl that I have ever seen. No bark pockets, no checks, no voids and really unusual figure. Good coloring too.
    There is some at K&G getting stabilized right now. Once I finish cutting up these pieces I will be sending in them as well.

    From the lack of comments I am guessing that you guys don't think this is anything special.

    Well......it is.

    Just you wait until it comes back from getting stabilized.
    Then I'll show you. BWAAAA HAAAA HAAAAA

    The stabilizing will cause the figure to show a strong metallic flash and the figure will have a holographic effect changing shape and from light to dark as it is moved around.
    ............I think.

    Hey, I just got back from watching my wife spend my paycheck, and I've been drooling over the pics since I logged in.

    How long before they're ready?

    FYI the hey it wa worth a try was in regards to getting a piece, not in regards to quality. It looks great!

    I am not positive but I have some stuff coming from K&G next week and I think some of this was in that batch.

    I know. I was just teasing you guys.
    It is hard to visualize what this will look like after stabilizing. But this type of figure increases in intensity quite a bit.

    I can't wait

    I think this will be another sight to see again. But you do seem to have a very good eye for this stuff.
