Amazing! - I've never seen something this big before!

It is amazing. This burl is a few blocks from my street and I visit it often to see the progress. So far he has even cleaned out the insides which is now highly polished too. I think he has worked on it for over 8 years, under a tarp/shed structure.
Big Leaf Maples tend to grow huge burls, but this one is really big. The tree was in his own lawn and had to be cut down because of rot.
I find it so fascinating, the patterns in the wood, it is really an experience just to touch it.
