no previous part Part 1 of Rescued from the Firewood Pile series no next part

Planed the first piece of maple burl today to really see what I had and i must say once planed it looks better.

The Burl wasn’t quite what I hoped for when I first cut it open, having the dark brown spots or bark woven-in.
Cut the tree down late last fall and this Burl was a pleasant surprise to find as all the rest of the wood is now part of the firewood pile for next year.

As you can see the log JUST clears my Bandsaw

Got quite a few good cuts from it as it had 2 separate burls and with 2 different styles of burl.
Had it in drying next to the woodstove for a week and its ready to go for a piece I have planned for a way over-due piece for the LOML.

Stay Tuned!
