Joining a Buckeye burl body cap

Roughing out the book matched stack with a power edge sander

Behold the beautiful alignment of the burls outer skin

Using a shooting block to further tame and square the edges

Using the slab for the final truing against a fence

Using two fences clamped down tight with wedge clamp blocks to put the squeeze on. A center weight and two clamps keep the seam flush

Rorschach imagery of the finest kind

Locating the splendor of the buckeye burl within the silhouette of the translucent body template
