    Yellow Box Burl

    Don't ask me why it is called that because it is not yellow ? Anyway it is from Austraila. It measures 7" x 8" by a tad over 1" tall. Finish is beall buffed only. I have to get a small stand to display this one standing upright. As alway your critiques are appreciated. Thanks for looking.

    It might not be yellow, but it sure looks cool. Great job with those wings.

    Ted I have turned red, brown, coolibah, white top and this yellow box. What I have found with these ausie burls is they don't always look like what you think they should. All you can do is trust your supplier to identify them correctly and I get mine from a very reputable supplier.

    The finish is perfect for the piece. It enhances the piece.

    That's a really great job of showing the wood in that 'whatever it is, whichever colored' burl. I agree it will look good standing in a holder.
    At the local MacBeath's hardwoods they sometimes have some burls they call "Goldfield Burl" that look a lot like that.
