Watch this gnarly tree burl get turned into a gorgeous dragon's egg

Andy Phillip found a tree burl out in the world, then decided to turn it on a lathe and make it into a sapphire dragon's egg.

Via Andy :

This gnarly burl was another field find , I was planning on making a vase but wasn't confident it would stay on the lathe while hollowing as some of it was quite punky , so it ended up being quite a cool looking egg ... I filled the voids with Alumilite Amazing clear cast epoxy resin and coloured with Jacquard sapphire blue pearl ex powder.
