These are some pieces of an old growth burl I found on my tree farm that I had a local small mill cut down. Figure tree to be at least 270 years old. Been drying for 3 years and hope to make it into tables this winter. Highly unusual pattern with bIrdseye and figuring.

Thank you all for your kind comments(Well, most of them anyway). I’ll have some finished tables to show in the fall.
