I posted this a while back on another forum. I bought this burl from a gentleman at our local flea market here in east mountains. He makes NE tables out of local wood and after talking to him for a while he mentioned he had a bunch of burls he had no use for. So, $20 later, here it is. He thought it would be neat to leave a few spikes on it so I did. I gave it to him to bribe my way into his sawmill....and it work. Obviously taken before I had my photo gradient.
