Got to cut up my cherry burl that i cut from a scrap pile around a month or so ago, put some anchorseal on the cut pieces. Figured it’d speed up drying and really wanted to see what it looked like inside. Wellllll I think it looks pretty good. One problem I see was the, what i assume is spalting and has made sections weak. Was wondering if it can be stabilized once it’s dried, if that would prevent it messing up? We cut one section, 4×4x12 for a vase or something, can something that big be stabilized? Anyway, here are the pics, the last one is a piece that broke from a scrap piece when i dropped it, has white stuff which i assume is fungus.

Anyone know what to do to prevent separating in the grooves like from my last pics? It’s drying and separating and don’t want the whole thing to ruin, need help!!!

Yea, cut it one small section at a time. Cherry is very forgiving as it should not split on you… Good find.

You can use CA glue to harden the weak spots.
