  7. James Seyfried liked Emiliano Achaval's media Milo burl vase in the album Maui Woodturner

    We got a call about this Milo, tree triers had to take it out because it was falling into the ocean... The trunk had some burls, you can see some of it... Almost 11 eleven inches tall and 5 and 5/8 wide. Finished with Danish Oil.
