Red oak burl
« on: December 14, 2005, 11:12:08 PM »
This is a red oak burl I came acros this summer.  I had been driving past it for years just to look at it growing in this guy's yard.  You can imagine my surprise the day I drove by and the tree growing out of it was cut down.  I pulled in to ask about it and the guy said I could have it if I turned him a bowl out of a piece.  8)   I offered him some money, but he wouldn't have it.  He will be recieving many nice items made from this burl. :) :) :)

On the stump...



Bark peeled off a quaretr of it...


Close up of figure...



The stump in the top pic is over four feet wide.  I screwed up the picture ratio's on the optimizer.

I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

Unless "red oak burl" is a specified transmission part, not in the budget. :D

Nice to see the pics of where that wood came from, ms.  It's also great to see what you've made from it!  Looks like you'll be getting a lot of mileage out of that burl.  I know I had fun turning my piece :)!  It's a lot easier to make spectacular bowls when nature's already done the hard part for you ;D.
