Nothing super new here to see (no skulls or anything!)... just trying to make the most of the pieces salvaged from my neighbor’s mom’s yard.

The burl must have been huge, but her nephew went at it pretty good with a chainsaw, so I’m left making the pieces into things.

I had some fun with this one adding matching latches to each side.

Oh, and in the first picture, that’s my camera hog dog, Jackson. I think he believes Lumber Jocks is a site where people share pictures of dogs.

p.s. I did use the Modern Masters Dead Flat Varnish to keep the inside cover and declivity from getting too dark. I’m consistently pleased with the results of using the varnish prior to applying polyurethane. The beauty of the grain is so much more exposed than if I just applied poly by itself.

LJs is a site to share pictures and stories of mans best friend. Maybe not in the projects arena. Some of us even have a shop dog, as important as anything else in the shop. Mine is a 94 lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

Anyway, Nice work on the burl.

PS I like the dog.

Thanks for the compliments on the burl… and on the dog! Jackson will be pleased that he was admired.

Feel free to post a pic of that Retriever in the comments!

Thank you! I’m really going to miss this wood when my neighbor stops bringing pieces over.
