I was searching around today on Craig’s List and found a super deal on a couple of Maple Burl blocks. I got both pieces for $10, on Ebay and other wood stores these pieces would go for $45 plus. Maple burl is hard to get and nearly impossible in my area. I used a little mineral spirits on one side of each piece to show the colors!
Both pieces are 1-5/8 x 2-1/2, one is 17 inches long and the other is 11-1/2 inches long. I am planning to use these to turn a batch of my wine bottle stoppers!! Give me a few weeks and I will post pictures! Happy Days 🙂

YAY for the Tigers, and YAY for the Dawgs!!!
Way to go Dawgs and Clemson Tigers!! Checked Craig’s List the last few days and found the nice pieces of Maple Burl and Curly Flamed Maple. Today I found a guy that had some 8/4 crotch walnut. Didn’t buy today, made an offer and he said he would think about it tonight and call me tomorrow. Happy New Year!!! Big Hugs!! Michael
