A while back I was contacted by one of the Tree Surgeons at Down to Earth Tree services in Shoreham Kent. He had just completed a contract in Lincoln's Inn in London and had to fell a Cherry tree with several reasonable sized burrs on it. After much deliberation as to the best way to cut them we finished up with a total of four good blanks three burrs and one that would be plain.
Below is a short sequence of pictures that I hope will give an insight into the process of turning some rather uninteresting looking burrs into what I hope you agree are four rather nice bowls.
All three of the burr bowls have now been retained by the people at Linclon's Inn.
