I found some beautiful walnut burl slabs but they were very punky and full of worm holes. So, I carved out the worm dust and crushed some malachite stone for inlay. I have four of these slabs and plan to mount them to a walnut back board to make small shelves. The burl in this walnut is amazing. These photos are after first heavy coat of Waterlox. because the wood was so dry and soft it will take many coats to build up a finish.
