I was recently asked if I could help a blacksmith, who has been making a beautiful musical note for an award. Could I make the base for the musical sculpture, yes I would give it a go. We looked at some oak ,yew and some elm and both decided on the elm . Here is my part after planing and sanding along with a little wax to make it glow ,a burl elm base as rich as fruit cake :)
