Turning Burls

Doug Reynolds
I have some Madrone and Big Leaf Maple burls that have some bark inclusions and no discernible grain pattern which allows me to know which way to mount the burls to turn a bowl or hollow form.

As I am new to burls which is the best way to mount the blanks especially if there are bark inclusions. I may be able to turn a smaller vessel and remove all or most of the inclusions.

Thanks or the advice, Doug
