Hi Gary

I think this new project of yours is great for two reasons: First, it is of a rather long duration, giving you something you can get involved in, and giving you pleasure along the way. Secondly, this burl is a real beauty, and will a magnificent piece. This a just one more aspect of your very diverse abilities. I am looking forward to viewing the finished product.

Bernie

A real renaissance man, for sure. In my VERY BRIEF time in a shop class, I had the best student build two small benches (basically three pieces of wood nailed together).

He kept the best one for his project: I bought the "B" one.Best shop grade I ever had.

One of the very best things about Gary is, he's as good a friend as you'll ever have.

I appreciate you, Friend!

Here's the progress to the test piece of red oak using the same procedure I intend to use on the larger project. Playing it safe by doing some small, test pieces of wood that I can afford to mess up.

Hi guys! Very cool, Gary, make it purty! I have been selling firewood and all that acquiring and processing firewood entails for several years as a hobby. Not any money in it, just something to keep me active and also puts me in the woods, which I like. And like dealing with various woods. And love running a chainsaw, lol. There is an oak tree on some of my land that has the largest burl on it I have ever seen. Would be measured in feet, not inches. Is on the side of the trunk but it's over my head. I keep waiting for the tree to get toppled by a big wind. Which happens. If not, someday, I might take it down. Big trees like that die anyway. They die all the time. Various things get them. Around here, the large oaks are dying. Plus, the winds get them. Anyway, it would make a heckuva table. Cheers!

Glad you’re back at it, Gary. I was never much of a handy man, so I envy your skills!

Thanks Paul. Today, I will be staining the sides of the oak board, which will need at least two more days to dry before applying the epoxy finish. Thus far, it is really looking like it will come out incredible. I hope to have a finished product on this piece by the end of the week.

All the best,

Gary cool
