Showcase cover image for Pine Burl Pieces

Project Information

A lady from Wyoming brought me this limb that was very old and had 4 burls on it. Two of them were under 2" in diameter and two were big enough to turn some pieces out of. I turned this bowl and lidded box from them. The bowl is 6" dia. and 2 3/4" high and the box is 4"Dia x 4"high.
The bowl had a few branches growing through it. They are finished with Danish Oil and clear gloss lacquer.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to all my Lumberjock family…..............Jim

Good work Jim, how did you like turning Pine? I've never tried it. Never heard of a Pine Burl either.

The red in the timber is pretty special as we only get a white pine here; the little lidded container is gorgeous!

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi John. This turned pretty easy but does not sand up as smooth as a hardwood like mesquite or pistachio. I was told it was lodgepole pine. I have a lamp made with it and it has a large burl on it

Cheers, Jim
