    Will do Joe.
    Going to be a LOT different than the other similar pieces I've done
    No layout lines/no hollow chisel mortiser/no drill press with Forstners/no jigs for the big PC plunge router/and hopefully no chiselling
    Sure could have used a Desktop 20 years ago when doing all the hardwood "Chinese puzzle" trim throughout the house

    Default Pin cherry burl

    Had another Visit from Bobtail Farm(Brian) on Friday and he brought ANOTHER burl
    This one is Pin Cherry, and he had a friend with a Woodmizer cut a 5/4 chunk we immediately jigged and started surfacing wet.

    Too lazy to post all over again, and want to play in shop
    BUT, just a couple.

    Jerry..You might have to wait a bit...still playing with ideas such filling the canyon and bark "rivers" with molten Tin, OR all kinds of crazy ideas that will gell while it's acclimating to the house and me removing 2.5" of it.

    Of course the perfect use for it would so that both sides could be seen
