My Dad sent me a picture on his phone of a wild cherry tree at our farm with 8 burls on one single tree! I consulted with a friend of mine on IG who specializes in Burls. He told me that you can find multiple burls on wild cherry trees for some reason. He also told me that termites love these things. After turning the first bowl out of these burls I quickly learned that I was going to have to find a way to kill the insects living inside of them before I turned one again. I began freezing the blanks for a week in a garbage bag before I turned them. Ill be posting all of my recent projects since I am fairly new to LumberJocks, but I thought I would share the gnarly grain of this cherry burl once I cut it open.
