This is one of the most unique display pieces you will ever see. The reason being you have to have the finished vision while running a chain saw to make the cut.
This free-form, natural edged, MAPLE CLUSTER BURL was cut by me in 1985-87. I did not know what it was going to be used for but I knew it was worthy.
In fact so worthy that I finished both sides. When we cut this piece it was fresh and still covered with bark. The only way to get the bark off of this piece without damaging the surface was to age it in the wood pile outside. After 2-3 years outside most of the Green moisture is gone from the piece and all off the bark peeled off easily.
Note the great natural detail and texture. without a doubt a piece I know I won’t replace any time…
