This Maple Burl is 6 to 7’ across! 3400 lbs
I sold this to a guy who is going to turn lots of Cowboy hats.
That is my boy Douglas in the back!
Enjoy!

WOW! That’s a lot of cowboy hats! Gee, just think how many cane handles I could make! I hope we get to see them here at LJ’s. I’m drooling all over myself!

So this burl was at ground level? Or up the trunk?

If it was at ground level how was the root ball/crown positioned? Ingrown throughout the burl itself or underneath the burl mass?

Just curious is all.
