The Burl 'before'

So, let me tell you why the original burl has Bob written on it in blue. The guy from Powell River that I purchased the burls from was named Bob and he worked in the forestry industry and would save burls….but another fellow kept taking his burls, so he started painting 'Bob' on them in blue.


The back of the burl
This burl was exquisite in grain and patterning and was so much fun to 'listen to the wood' during the creation of this piece!
Oh and it came in to 'being' on the first day of Spring, so I've named this whale tail 'Springer'
