Cut up half of a 90 lb piece today. Got lucky again. Dry on outside but inside was wet. Big set are about 28"× 10-8

:watchingyou:These burl pics is like a strip tease for those of us addicted to wood. We can’t hold em without spending a lot of cash. Let’s just say I think these pics qualify as wood p o o r n.

I imagine you having a happy dance cutting these open. :yipee::dance2:

They were not cheap whole. Some pay off. Some not so much. These 2 have been fabulous.

Man, just glad I'm not the biggest fan of Buckeye Burl or I would pressured to drop some serious money! Good looking wood though!

Well, well looks like the evil reptilian (or is he a reptilian pig?) villain strikes again and I am not sure if I am digging the black skirt or are those hungry evil dogs stampeding towards me? Reminds of “unsettling images” in keeping of the late artist Francis Bacon. It is amazing how some book-match will form a shape of something, like a portrait of sorts. Like “as is”, if you are into expressionism/surrealism/cubism- this could be frame (frameless modern framing) and hang into a wall as a focal point...........

^I had him peg as the evil pig, but then I thought that I see resemblance of a big bad wolf. There is some fun interpretations if these were put up as “nature’s art” and framed. Spend enough time staring at being coherent without any help of certain things (cough, cough:wink:)- I am sure you will see some other things if you know what I mean.

Mike- I better not find this work of art in some fancy snooty gallery in Seattle. Anyhow, these would make some wonderful guitar or bass tops!

and I have not stopped in seattle for 7 years- that was to buy a jointer. If I never go there again it will be too soon.
