Collecting a Large Burl

Daniel and the BURL

It is great honor to harvest an old large burl.
This wonderful maple, old and burled, had to be taken down for a house pad.
Salvaged from the house site this aged tree already had rot in it and was at the end of its life.
7 1/2 foot diameter maple burl had grown around a large rock.
Cutting was carefully executed.
The burl was lifted out by an excavator.
Now it is at the design studio, waiting to be cut into table slabs.
The wood has deep color variations and dramatic grain.
Truly a jewel of wood.

Deciding a cut.( Even that saw is not long enough to pass in one cut. )
