I recently finished up this small vessel set out of some of the amazing Orange Box Elder Burl that Jonathan Medina scored a little while back. These vessels are 3” x 3” and have no foot, the natural edge burl cap is the base for these pieces. They are finished with Grit and Sheen.

Those are really nice Roper.

Does the moisture content make a huge difference when turning burl?
What’s best? (I have some oak burl that needs attention.)
