Probably should have ask this before, but did I make a mistake cleaning all the bug  holes out of a white ash burl. Havent done any of these before, but it seemed right to clean them..Cant send a picture it must be to large. Thanks for any responses to this.

Cleaning the powder out of the holes adds to the "artsiness" of the piece as now it can't hold soup!

Personally, it does make it look better as it gives it more interest to the eye. Smiley

You will have to drip some of your finish into the holes to seal them up.

If you reduce it to the proper size (200kb) we'll gladly take a look
