More beauties! Kindly share your finishing method. If you get the chance, please take a couple of pictures of the process, starting with a raw burl, the cuts, the finishing. I think we'd all enjoy seeing that. Thanks for sharing your work.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

The process is quite simple. Just cut out the required shape (to your imagination), sand down on sander/linisher and apply lacquer. The wood will do the job for you.
It will require several coats and sanding in between coats. That depends on wood - the harder the wood (better quality), better the finish.
You will get better results if you finish individual pieces before assembly and apply a couple last coats on the assembled article, however, make sure not to paint the joints otherwise the glue won't stick.
