My latest nerve wracker *PIC*

Travis Stinson
>Blue Buckeye burl 5"x5.5".........FULL of voids all around! I tried at 1st to fill some of them in, but kept wondering why my gouge kept needing resharpening. I mean, it's just some soft bark spots...WRONG! They were full of dirt . OK, I'll just pick 'em all out, that was fun, lol. And to top it all off, I found a natural separation line going about halfway around , thank goodness for CA!!! I went as thin as I dared with the walls and chickened out at 3/16". I just KNEW it was gonna explode on me, but all worked out fine.
Topped off with an Ebony collar, lacquer and she weighs in at 5 ozs.
