I want to thank Herb, Stick, Tonto 1, Mark, and Vince you guys have a great sense of humor, that's what I love
about this site. This is the Walnut Burl table top I had to strip down and do over, Much better the second time.
The top was sprayed with two coats of lacquer, the next day two more coats, did this for 5 days. Than two coats
of urethane for three days with wet sanding between coats. Oh yea I forgot to add the pictures yesterday, than
I forget lots of things these days. .

Hi Larry,The outline of the table top looks like neck,shoulders & chest (to me) & you have brought out one of natures' best designs.A beautiful work of art. Congratulations & thank you for sharing

John, I am glad you weren't offended, I got to thinking that I shouldn't have said that,knowing you made a mistake and forgot to post the picture. But I had to do it.........
I wish there iis a WOW button for posts like that, and we seem to be getting a lot of them lately.
Great job joining those 2 pieces down the middle,they look like one piece. I just love wood patterns like that. Good job matching the finish on the pedestal too.

Wow, that is truly special! What are the dimensions of that top. My mill will cut up to 26" if I remember correctly. I would love to cut some stuff like that if I can find it.

Love the burl Larry, and the structure is also well done. Anyone should be proud to display such beauty in a home.

Larry great use of the wood, some people would have made pen blanks out of it. Nice finish, really shows off the grain well.

Quentin the widest part of the burl is 23”. The guy I got it from (Trade Winds) bought a tractor trailer load of burls
many years ago, and still has lots of them.

Absolutely beautiful wood and craftsmanship. Great job. Two questions. Why does your shop look so clean and why is your scrap bin so much smaller than mine?

Barry I vacuum almost every afternoon before leaving. The scrap bin you see is not a scrap bin. It is stickers
with clear tape on them I use for glue ups.
