I got a message from Glen (burlman) that he has finished his masterpiece! Glen writes:
"My family and friends put on an open house June 23/24th and it went very well. We raised funds for the Canucks Place Children's Hospice by accepting donations and giving away a beautiful pool cue made from the same wood. If you visit my blog http://www.theburlshack.blogspot.com, you'll find a lot more information and photos."
Thanks for letting us know Glen! It's truly amazing the work that you and mother nature have put into this!
