Beech burr/burl kuksa

Postby fish » Fri Oct 01, 2010 9:11 pm

A work in progress.


on a recent walk in the local woods i happened upon a beech tree i had seen a hundred times,even camped next to one time,its very old like over 200 years,sadly it is in bade shape and many of the limbs have fallen and the core is rotted ,yet it clings on! anyhow whilst looking i noticed the most wonderful burr/burl on it so i lopped it off,initially i feared it was rotted but there were small sprouts on it. I believe it is a rare thing to find a true burr/burl on a beech.

Today i started carving it into my new kuksa,as i carved it became apparent that it is not only a fine burr/burl but spalted too!

here is some pics:
