O baby this birds eye nugget was a treasure, the idea behind this table was to leave the out side natural and really polish the inside too show you were all that beautiful grain comes from. I carved the center to look like some kind of fruit core just to give it a little more flavor.

Amazing. I love the way the contour of the glass top follows the natural curves of the table.

We really like this table. The burl is incredible and the workmanship is fabulous.

How large is the table?

My first thought seeing this piece was sadness due to the fact that burl could of yielded numerous bowls. After gazing at the piece for some time, I realized there was not project more fitting than that table. Nicely done, sir. Nicely done indeed.

Thanks, I sure thought about it too for a long time, for over a year. For some reason the shape that come about felt rite.
The table was about 2 1/2 feet across and 18 inch high.

That is just beautiful!
You have such wonderful woodsight!

I had a burl tragedy just moments ago. I rescued this cherry burl (or gall really, i think) “held” within a branch, from the fireplace pile; my man had just put it in the log splitter!!!!! (i had a talk with him) So, after sitting with it a while, i realized that it only needed a hand, so that folks could see how that branch claimed that gall…..then, i accidentally bored through the burl while bowing it.

That’s really cool. The first picture I saw I thought that’s not a table, it’s a bowl ! But when I saw the picture with the top I realized what an awesome piece it is. Good job Jeffro. Thanks for posting the size.
