I have been harvesting burls for 3 years now but never one this size. AT a guess, at minimum it weighs 150lbs. me and my buddy are big country boys and love hard work, but this was beyond two grown men getting it out of the woods. this is about the size of all of them. i didn't want to cut it in half, not knowing if i was going to be able to get it out soon, and risk checking or ruining the wood.n I have a cherry burl to drop, 2 oak burls, and 3 maple, one is a giant red maple. I just don't want to cut it in pieces but if feel there is no other way, to first store it, but also to be able to cut it into smaller pieces non the band saw. I really don't want to cut it due to the fact i don't know what is under the bark. I can tell this piece is going to have some gnarly grain. I am running out of room to store it, haha. never thought that would ever cross my mind. I have a ton of wood in the wood shop, in the shed, up in the loft, and above the garage. I don't want to stop cutting since all of it has been for free. i guess it is time to pull some favors, and store it else where!!!!!
