    Buckeye Burl Natural Edge

    Just a small NE piece... nice color and figure, in my opinion. All the other pieces of this wood I've turned have been like turning styrofoam... this one, however, had a bit of density. All flavor of opinions welcomed.

    Beautiful! If I had turned this one it would probably remain on my mantle.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
