That table is a lot of burl !!
I've never used elm . I have all the equipment on order to stabilise my own wood . So new year I hope to use and sell a little more .
I wish I was gifted with the stuff but in really not .
I had a wood lathe a few years back and loved turning logs into match sticks but never hit any further 😀

My projects, leatherwork thanks to Gaffers kind guidance, knife blade is one of Midnights.

My first goes at leatherwork, a few errors but ok I think.

Knife, obviously unfinished!

Thanks fellas, yup Longers, burr elm. Really enjoyed making that. A beeswax block as polish seems to work well. Any ideas why the araldite I used with bronze powder to fill holes wouldn't set solid? The superglue I had for backup set hard, just did it too bloody quickly!
