Big Willow Burl *PIC*

>Since Mike Schwing keeps torturing us with huge burls we will never see as turnings, I thought I'd post this...

Here's a large Willow burl available to me in Western Mass -- its about 54" x 66" where it was cut off the stump; that's my wallet on there for scale, on a photo from last summer. I think its a Weeping Willow, but it might be a Black Willow, as these are pretty common with burls, too. Should I go get it ?

Safe Spinning,
