Hello, I have recently come into many burl slabs. As I am not a wood expert, I was hoping yall could help me with identifying these burls.

I would be so appreciative. They are older….70’s…..

You need to sand off more on them to get a better view. Pretty sure you have some serious dollars worth of burls though.

Katy,

You might want to contact Oregon Burls (a fellow LumberJock) for help identifying your burls.

It’s all Old Growth California Redwood. Some of it is Birds Eye, some Curly. But all appear to be Root Slabs.

That’s toenails! No wonder I couldn’t find it in the wood database…

But your foot could be 12” long and 5” wide, so we are confused. That is some nice looking wood! And it’s a good thing that I don’t have a foot fetish. Maybe wear sneakers next time. Is it hot in here or is it just me? =D

All kidding aside, contact Greg at Oregon Burls. He can give you a more definitive response.
