Birch Burl

I was given a lovely Birch Burl yesterday by my good mate Hugo, who had originally got it from Peter at the recent BCUK March meet.

I had commented that i wished i had picked up a burl at the meet, so Hugo does no less than gives this one to me and says something along the lines of "you will do a better job on it than i will", or something along those lines.

So next week, I'm going to try and do him proud and make a bowl from it using my adze, and if the grain patterns he showed me in the Kuksa he made from a similar, but smaller burl are anything to go by, it should, fingers crossed, be a stunner.
