Maple Burl *PIC*

Dave Peebles Lyons, Ohio!
>Hello All,

Ever since I have been doing woodturning I tend to look at trees in a different way.

This burl has been haunting me for a few years. I finally stopped today to ask the owner if I could take a photo of it. She seemed a little taken aback, but gave me the ok. She told me that she didn't know what was wrong with it. :) I said... not a thing. But if you ever decide to cut it down, please let me know. And yes, I did leave my contact info.

It almost looks like an elephants ear from some angles. And is very solid.

I did decide that it is a Maple tree. I decided to include my Woodcentral hat for scale.

Best wishes,
Dave
