Yesterday morning I woke to the sounds of Chainsaws:o) The neighbor was having their trees taken out.
One had a few burls on it and the fellow taking it down said I could have them. I had helped him with one big branch that was growing out way over the house. I didn't get a picture but the 12" plus branch had a 8" hollow hole through the center. They were lucky It didn't end up on their house in a wind storm. He said I could take as much as I wanted:o)
A few of the pieces had red streaks in them. They are caused by the ambrosia beetle. They will make beautiful bowls!
I had a small piece of crotch section and turned a plate really quick. It turned out nice:o)
Stay tuned for more box elder madness:o)
