Hey Lumberjocks,
Can anyone tell me what species of wood this is? This burl was a gift from a friend years ago. I did a lot of re-sawing and sanding to get to this point. The finish is BLO followed by several coats of wipe on poly. Truly God’s artwork.
Thx
Greg

You may have better lluck identifying the wood from the bit of non-burled wood at the lower right of the first photo. I would also guess maple.
