Day 360: Baby burl
A fellow club member came over for a few minutes this morning. I roughed a cored a piece of maple burl for him about a month ago and he's been out of town on vacation and hadn't had a chance to come get it yet. We finally got our schedules sorted out and he came over to pick it up.
He also brought a gift for me, 3 small Pine burls. I decided to turn and hollow one of them this evening. It almost came apart on me a couple of times but it held together just long enough. I still have to do most of the sanding and apply a coat of oil.
