Boxelder burl


I told some  post ago "woodturning garden" where i found this Boxelder burl...
It's really an amazing wood, there is some blue some orange/pale red and a spalted red core...
i finish it with mix of beswax and some stuff used to polish the bufalo horn.
hope these colors will be more defined with some light oxidation..
Next Boxelder burl i think it will get some mineral oil (don't want white takin' yellow)before buffed with wax.

It's 28 cm diameter and 21 tall...
was a big burl for what i used to work...
i enjoy really a lot turning this burl,
spend an hour to sand by hand,
till 400....






i played with picasa, a free kind of photoshop to adjust the picture...
a lot of contrast to show more clean the 3D pattern....

Much tired
 Cheers
