Hey everyone, It has been a while. Just slammed with cutting burl.
I was walking a friends property looking for burl and had my camera man tag along. Check it out.

I saw this one in Oregon when I was there last summer.

Sorry about the picture being sideways, I’m not able to rotate from my iPhone!

that is a nice one for sure. It is hollow though just because of the big funnel that has held water for years. The center is out of this one. Would still love to have it! :)

You will probably not be able to get this one as it is in a parking lot at Bridal Veil Falls State Park east of Portland.

Oregon has a burl plague or something like that. I never see them in the WA woods ;-((

FUN FUN FUN Stuff! I wish I had had time to stop and visit you when I was driving through Grant’s Pass on a westcoast visit. You live in some of the most beautiful woodlands that one could wander through.

Greg, thanks for taking us along. Would have loved to hear the names of the different trees in the video.

That kind of makes me want to take a saw along and start cutting the wild burls I often see here in central Arkansas…
