MAPLE CLUSTER BURL DISPLAY

This is one of the most unique display pieces you will ever see.  The reason being you have to have the finished vision while running a chain saw to make the cut.

This free-form, natural edged, MAPLE CLUSTER BURL  was cut by me in 1985-87.  I did not know what it was going to be used for but I knew it was worthy.

In fact so worthy that I finished both sides.  When we cut this piece it was fresh and still covered with bark.  The only way to get the bark off of this piece without damaging the surface was to age it in the wood pile outside.  After 2-3 years outside most of the Green moisture is gone from the piece and all off the bark peeled off easily.

img_2067Note the great natural detail and texture.  without a doubt a piece I know I won’t replace any time soon.

img_2060this shows the display with a 9x6x3 inch Japanese  pot from the mid  90’s and  with a Redwood bonsai about 24 inches tall.

These last two show the same tree before and after potting up.  Every 2-4 years we remove the tree from the pot, clean and trim the roots, then repot with fresh soil.  The redwood shown here was started from a cutting and I have been working on it since 2004.  Note the multiple stems.  This is one of my favorites.
