Burls
« on: October 18, 2019, 02:13:41 AM »
A couple weeks ago I harvested 2 maple burls and a white oak burl. I brought them over to a friend of Deadeye's.  He turns them on his lathe and made a few bowls. I found it very interesting and fun to watch an artist at work.

Maple burl first.

Only turns them down to 3/4 inch thick.He puts something on them.  Sprays or brushes it on, don't remember which and let's dry 2 or 3 months.  He will then turn them the rest of the way down.

We saw a huge one about the size of a garbage can lid on an old Oak in our hunting area that we talked about for years.  They logged off that part of the woods last year!  :pouty:
