    Those are so cool George. It looks like some kinds of turning is like the proverbial box of chocolates.... you don't know what is inside that chunk of wood until it dries. This from someone so new to woodturning, he hasn't turned yet
    Aloha,

    George, the wood's movement makes these look great IMO.

    That's why burr oak is one of my favorites. Plus I can get plenty of it around here.

    Man, they sure moved on you. I like that kind of stuff. Wet madrone burl is another one that's real prone to moving in bizarre ways.

    Nice job, and thanks for the pics, George.
