Elm Burl Vase
This is one fantastic Elm burl. The pictures show how I “attacked” this piece. At first it was very hard to start cutting off the outside protrusions, but I felt that I had to really show the wood, and now there is no doubt that it was the right thing to do. It is app. 22” (57 cm) wide and 10” (25 cm) tall. It is still drying so I am applying mineral oil and keep polishing.
