These two pieces are newly added to the catalog.  They are cut from “the same stone,” as it were, as they were originally one piece of burl from an oak tree.  This particular piece grew external of the tree and thus fell off.  It didn’t have a flat edge to work with as a display.

So after some consideration of the piece as a whole, I decided I liked the “Rosebud” on the one end of the piece.  So after a conversation about sizes and such, we cut the burl in twain.  Favoring the rocky looking exterior of the “Rock Outcropping” piece.

So please, check out the pair of them:
