I haven't decided what to make from this yet. But there's a short story behind this burl. A friend at work called me on the radio the other day and said he had found a weird looking 'knob' on a tree and asked me if I wanted him to get it for me. (I drive a concrete truck so I'm always around construction sites where there are trees being removed) I told him sure so he said he'd try and cut it off with his Leatherman tool. My first thought was that it couldn't be much of a knob if he could cut it with a 2 1/2" saw on a Leatherman. He cut it off and put it in my pickup. When I saw it I couldn't believe he was able to cut this with that little saw blade. I can't wait to see the wood inside and hopefully turn something nice from it as a gift to him for his effort. It's about 12-14" thick with the trunk about 4" thick, much more than I'd ever try to cut off with a Leatherman tool.
