I was getting my Afzelia burl block cut from a furniture workshop. I have known the owner for many years now. He had done most of the furniture in our house. While looking around, I picked up a piece of teakwood. It appeared to be an ordinary piece and had it cut into blank size pieces. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the blanks. It was actually a burl. This afternoon, I rounded the pieces and covered them with CA glue. I was quit stunned with the outcome. I am sure they will make a nice pen (or two) one day.
