I looking for suggestions for this burl. It was one of those purchases with no product in mind. I bought it 10 years ago so it’s well dried by now.
It’s 30” high with a small flat spot, maybe 8” wide, on the bottom and 32” high. The flat spot is at least 2” thick, The rest of the burl is not as thick.
It was sanded or planed flat when I bought it but it has shrunk as it dried so there are now low spots on the surface. The back is chainsawed flat, which means not really flat. The edges have been water blasted to remove all bark and so there are some sharp pointed pieces of wood.
I haven’t asked but I’m sure that my wife would not let me make a table out of it. Because, with the grandchildren and the sharp edges, it is probably not compatible.
Too big and heavy for a clock, and not sure if I want to cut it up into smaller pieces.
Looking for suggestions.
