    Hi Neil,

    I'm still looking for that elusive nice piece of olive for a mortar and pestle. Something around 200mm diameter and at least 150 thick would be wonderful for the mortar, I would probably want something a bit bigger than 50x50x150 for the pestle though, if you finish up with a suitable piece, otherwise I can make do with 75x75 and I can cut a couple of pen blanks off of it as well (oops - did I say that out loud )

    Cheers

    Sorry to have to pull out due an unexpected death in the family. As the coroner is involved, the funeral is likely to be late next week.
    Hope you all have an enjoyable few days.

    Regards
    Bob

    The burl seems to be 4 trunks/burls connected by a crap load of tangled roots. I took my first slice today between two burls and it took 3 sharpens as I hit a heap of dirt pockets (black bits in photo). So I've ordered a TCT chain for my chainsaw and hope I can get it cut up in time but I'm not sure.

    The bandsaw has been fitted with a new 1" TCT blade I ordered but I had to make up a new guide system as the one on the bandsaw was not adjustable and only suited a 10mm blade.
