    Nice lookin stuff Al, both the produce and the tools
    I too have an elm burl waiting to be carved, I cut it last year and I still haven't had the time or inspiration as to the design of the cup I wish to carve out of it.

    Cheers

    Cheers lads.

    Phil we had a Elm come down here about 3 years ago and its covered in burls .
    Real handy that nobody round about seems to want them so I just cut them as an when I need them.
    Plenty time on my hands so the carving helps pass my day.

    Thanks for lookin lads

    Cheers
