    Don't really know what this lump is or what I'm going to do with it. But after way too much time spent shaping, sanding to 1000 grit, and then going back down to 120 to change the way it looked in one spot or another...well, I've decided I like it a lot.

    My daughter calls it "the cinnamon bun."

    Chakte Vega burl scrap, no finish except buffing.

    That's a pretty piece of wood! I think I would make a turtle out of it.... carve a head and some little feet and attach them.......

    Very nice
    I love the fact there is no finish applied to it, just natural beauty of the wood
