Topic tags/keywords: question cherry burl

Hello all, This is my first post and was wondering what I’ve got here. I know it’s black cherry but why is it so red. The tree was dying so I cut it down and it was hollow. From the outside it didn’t look like a burl. I can’t find a picture of cherry that looks anything like it. Thanks for the help.

That’s not burl, just wood that was starting to rot away. If it is solid enough it will make some nice looking projects.
