We cut this tree down in Feb and just got the video done. We slabed the burl and the logs in to counter top blanks and table blanks. We used my 088 stihl with a 36” and 72” bar. Also for the slabbing used the the 60” lucas mill slabber. The pic below the vid are 12’ slabs of the log.

Enjoy and thanks for watching

Nice Job…that was one big burl cap….including the one up the trunk. Those will make some great tables or other decorative woodworkings. Who said Burls don’t grow on trees?.....

Greg, it just so happened that I had some Slayer coming out of my speakers when you were wielding that massive chainsaw. I had to resist pumpimg my fist in the air. :)

Spreading Contagion by Beheaded is also a very appropriate soundtrack to view this :p
