One of the most expensive woodworking projects of my career. This myrtle wood burl was probably the most incredible wood I have ever seen in person and I was lucky enough to get commissioned to turn it into a desk for a client. I will break down the staggering cost of these slabs, my process for turning them into a desk, and I experience a few of the pitfalls that tend to come with woodworking. 0:00 Intro 0:46 Myrtle Slab buying 2:03 Joining the bookmatch 3:16 Fail #1 3:53 Fixing the first failure 5:15 Edge cleanup/about Myrtle Wood 7:07 Filling imperfections 8:00 C-channels/recessing table legs 10:20 Woodworking tip of the day 11:30 Conspicuous hole 12:38 Fail #2 13:20 Fixing fail #2 14:00 Most expensive wood in the world? 15:30 First coat of finish 17:54 Black Forest Ceramic 19:30 Stainless table legs 20:00 Reveal Related videos and blogs: One-on-one consultation: https://www.blacktailstudio.com/shop/...
