        burl wood

        Gene, I also was surprised when Mark at DD woods told me he no longer deals with burl wood for scrollers. After some thought, I figured he still was in the saw mill business, so I called him back. He told me he dosent cut the wood for the patterns anymore. I asked him if he wood just sell me the wood in bulk and I would cut the wood myself to go with whatever pattern i was ucing. I grind and burn the edges myself. He liked the idea and he sent me $500\.00 dollars worth of some beuatiful wood. call back and ask if he'll sell it in bulk. good luck , Rain Man

          Gilmer Woods in Portland Oregon has lots of burls- and they ship. The nice thing about them is they show the actual pieces on their website and you can see what you're ordering. Their website is http://www.gilmerwood.com

                That's one of the great things about the internet. A person posts a question and the question and answers are still benefiting people two years later.

                Thanks for the question and for the answers, as late as they may be. I'm off to check out some burl suppliers now.

                  I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                  I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

                  I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

                  The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
