I have some burls and I don’t really know how to approach cutting them. Should I cut them vertically with the tree or horizontally? I think I might get more pen blanks if I cut vertical. I am worried about the strength if I cut horizontal but because the grain in a burl is everywhere it might be ok. Any ideas on the best way to cut them?

I would have to see pictures. I have no idea what type of burl and how big.
