I bandsaw pieces like that approximately cylindrical and then turn them on my lathe. If they are big and heavy you’ll need a good sized lathe.

Thanks, I was thinking of leaving as many as i could square with live edge. Is rounded stock really that much more marketable?

People go for nice big bowls. And, if the wood has stresses in it, turning it is a lot safer than trying to make it into boards. If a bowl twists a bit you can often turn it round again or leave it as is.
