My latest woodworking update: 2 pieces for my wonderful wife, Santina. The first is a vessel/bowl made from claro walnut burl. The second is a box (with lid) made from big leaf maple burl. Burls are pretty cool. As long as you’re careful when turning (there are more than a few cracks/gaps in burls), the swirling grain patterns are worth it. Here are two pictures–or go directly to the walnut vessel or the maple box.
