Topic tags/keywords: cherry burl

I have a sizable cherry burl aprox 24” x 20” x 12” cut down on 9-5-2011. The burl is still attached to the trunk as seen in the photo. That’s a 36” ruler in the photograph. Location: East Hampton NY.
Is anyone interested in purchasing this burl or know of market for it.

Thank you.

Tom, I would think that you need to cut the burl and let us see the quality of the wood. It could be beautiful or not. Can’t tell now. Is it green or dry?

Robert, The burl is off a tree that came down in hurricane Irene on Aug 28, 2011. Right now (Sept 8th) it’s sitting outside getting drenched from the remnants of hurricane Lee. Quite frankly I’m not sure the best way to store it until someone buys it. I’m also not knowledgeable enough about burls to know where to cut it to best show the wood without diminishing it’s value to someone.

SgtSnafu, I don’t have a price on it because I’m not sure of it’s value. It’s located in the Hamptons, eastern tip of Long Island NY. The burl is still embedded in the trunk and the whole piece shown in the photo weighs 200-300 lbs.

tom, thanks for the reply. I’ve heard about those hurricanes. kind of like earthquakes, but wet? I hope to see pictures of it when cut, but it may be best to sell to someone who cuts those for a living. I have miscut a burl and it is not a good feeling to see the result.
