« Part 2: Whats inside the Spalted Maple Burl load! Part 3 of The Burl Hunter series Part 4: Rare Madrone Burl Caps »

Hey all my friends,

I was contacted by a home owner who said they have a maple burl and was I interested.
We after 6 hours of planning cutting and then the crane, the monster burl is in our yard.

My wife Theresa is there to show the sheer size of this burl.

8’ diameter and 10,000 lbs. Wow. So I need your help. do you know of a mall, hotel, lodge or resort that would like this as a display piece or large lamp post?

We will be pressure washing the bark off and can hollow it out for the client.

$6000 as is!

Any hoo I just wanted to show the big burl I got yesterday.

Be blessed

Hi Greg. My wife said you had enough there to send a piece to every LJ member! I thought that was a good idea, especially if it’s post paid.

Hate to cut this one up.

So what happened to the lower half? Is it still in the ground? (Assuming this was the top half of the root crown.)

What a magnificent specimen! I need a longer bibb to catch the drool!

I could use it in my front yard! If I had it enclosed in a controlled tropical setting I would achor a collection of orchids on it, or maybe carve it as a sculpture with jungle creatures all over it.

Please let us know what happens to this beauty.

$6000 sounds like a deal. Throw in free shipping (to Wisconsin) and unloading it and we’ll take it!
