I truly love working with red oak burl. It yields fine slices with a razor-sharp tool, then shifts to a dynamically crinkled, fully textured surface that can only be compared to a grape drying to a raisin. Holding the finished form is like being injected with a boost of energy, its source unrevealed, especially this piece which truly emphasized the "WOW factor" in thin-walled hollow turning.
