WoodY Restaraunt

Creative projects for a restaurant in Torrey Pines. Turning 300 y.o. Red Cedar Burl into a hostess stand as well as crafting coffee table from stone and wood.

First step was decided to turn that large burl into a hostess stand, but how? you would ask...

The goal was to create cabinet inside the burl so menus and POS system can be stored inside as well as run power thru the burl to have a nice brass lamp coming out.

 Don is a natural born tree surgeon, start from cutting the inside of the burl.
