no previous part Part 1 of The Burl Hunter series Part 2: Whats inside the Spalted Maple Burl load! »

Hey all my friends. Just spent about 20 hours getting this Spalted Maple Burl from a guy in Sweet Home, OR. Nice place! It was one tree and about 10,000 lbs. 6” diameter burl at the butt. Beautiful colors. Grade A burl. Went over the scales at 25,000 gvw and I tared at 13,300. All to say I got lots and I am grateful.

Spent 12 hrs just to load it. My team did not have the word “QUIT” in their vocabulary. Grueling work but good work.

thanks for looking!

The word “awesome” is totally inadequate, even bold, italic and underlined.

Congratulations on your score!

Kindly,

Lee

Thanks Lee. Ho it cost me but still profitable. I am fortunate. I have another one just as big that I will be getting next week.

Some people get to have all of the fun! Hope we get to see more when it is cut. How did the Big Redwood deal work out? Someone had a lot of old wood along the coast?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
