When I noticed that a particular plane through this piece of Australian red mallee burl was roughly heart shaped, I knew this had to be for my mother who loves all things “heart”. Finished with General Finishes Bowl Finish.

This is gorgeous! Wow. Very neat to design around the unique coloring. Did you grab a picture of the wood before you started?

Absolutely Beautiful. Great piece of Burl.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It’s about 5” across. I had that piece of burl laying around for several years, so don’t remember how much it cost anymore.

That is just pretty darn amazing… I hope your mom knows what a special piece of wood that is..
