Small Cherry Burl - 20 replies
I am not too much into wood turning but I tend to save burls when I run across them. Found this cherry burl today and I have no use for it. The tree was dead standing so it has dried some. $15.00 + shipping I think I can get it into a large flat rate but I may have to shorten the stem a little.

How do I dry a bowl blank - 2 replies

That may change, today while working in the wood lot I came across what I think is a really cool cherry burl it is about a foot in diameter and was on a 3” diameter limb. I know some turners rough turn th...

Awesome tap hole curly Rock Maple - 9 replies
I finally bit the bullet and purchased a sawmill about a month ago. My biggest reason for doing so was to be able to salvage the 200 year old maples that are slowly dying off in our maple orchard. It is sad to see them go and it seemed there must be a higher use than firewood. Here is a picture of a small slab that I brought into the shop this m...

Off-topic click to see post - 4 replies
This forum may cause me to freeze to death. For about 45 of my 61 years I have made at least a portion of my income from the harvest of trees. My dad and grand dad taught me well how to do this work and they also taught me what a valuable log was and what went in the firewood pile. If a log had laid around a bit and had spalted it was ruined, a ...
