Woodworking Projects – Distinctive Birch Table

My next woodworking project: I usually wanted to do some factor with burled wood. I extremely rarely get my hands on it. This large Birch stump had 1 large burl and a quantity of smaller ones on it. Instead of cutting them out and discarding the rest of the log, I wanted to integrate them all in 1 object. The stump itself has many fascinating cavities and depressions in it, so I felt it would do the tree injustice if I only took the burls. The wood has tons of beautiful functions, like black lines from spalting, green and red spots from other fungi, brown streaks from pieces of cambium, leftover pieces of bark and the chaotic burl grain. When I applied the initial coat of oil, my jaw dropped to the floor, I by no means could have dreamed it would look this great (you can see that later on in the vid) This table was produced in Hortus Haren, Netherlands.
