Thanks for the video. I’ve been all over my 5 acres of woods and I found one burl. It’s on a wild cherry that’s about 4” in diameter. The burl is about the size of a softball. If I live long enough for it to get bigger, I’ll make something out of it.

Hi Greg,
How do you secure the burl to stop it from moving while it’s being cut?

Hey Ken, When you get down to the bottom it wants to move so I need to figure out how to fasten it.

Hey Greg,

When you first held that slab up I saw a face in it. It two eyes and a big mouth, it kinda looked like cartoon character but I can’t think of which one.
