Here is a broad leaf Maple burl tuning. Kind of an anomaly in nature. Due to the danger in this piece I waited until I had a very good day. If the hand held tool caught in one of the open edge spaces it could shatter!

Always loved burls, in any species of wood.
I just keep coming back again and again like the Evil Twin of a Bad Penny !
