Hey everyone,

I was asked by a few of you from my blog “How to find legal burls” “once I get them how do I cut the burls”?

Well I just made a short vidio on how I cut to the burl in the context of a bowl or hollow form blank.

Please coment and add if I don’t cover it well. If you not want to go thru the hassle of finding and cutting your own you can alway buy from me. LOL
Thanks
Greg

Thanks Todd on the tip for getting the video on this post.

Thanks for the post, I have been curious about burls for quite a while now, I don’t think I am going to go out and get my own but I do have a project (tool chest) that I am going to make for myself after Christmas and I am going to try to figure out a way to incorperate burley wood into it so you may be getting a call from me then, do you ship to Canada?

Great video Greg, I was getting a little nervous when you broke out that giant chain saw, I would hate to see what kickback on that baby is like.

Greg, your video is good.

Grab the embed code and paste it where you want the video to be seen.

When I add the embed code after this sentence it will show up like this.

Thanks so much. I was wondering how to imbed videos and yes I do ship to Canada and I do have a larger saw than that. I haven’t had a saw kick back on me. I am very careful with the big saw. I would be in 2 pieces in the blink of an eye. and there is no burl in me. lol I think I answered everyones question and comments
Blessings

Greg, very cool video. Not many people get to see the very “rough” stages of wood. Very educational. Thanks Mike

Oh good, I see you got it. It is much better to see it on the page rather than follow a link.
Once again, great video.

I loved the video; very informative. I’ve never heard of cooking wood in a vat though. Could you tell me more about that? Are you just boiling it in water to cure it or is it something else?

I got these from my buddy who has a veneer plant. He boils the burls whole so they shave smooth. Madrone needs to be boiled to releave some of the internal stress at a cellular level. there are some that like to steam the wood, some pressure cook it and some boil it. All releave pressure.
