>The phone rang last evening and the SMLW president said that a man with a wood mizer was offering some maple burls to us and would I want to go after it. Yes, and this morning after church I went and did just that. There were about a dozen burlcaps, some wide slabs and at least one large burl. There was absolutely no room for another piece in my Mazda pickup with a cap. I took a nice sea urchin ornament and will take another when I go back to put some end grain sealer on a piece for the man, who helped me very much. It is by no means clear how much of this wood will make it to the club. It was destined for the fireplace if I didn't get it.
