value of giant burl

Hi there,
I work as an arborist and usually find a home for unique pieces of wood that I come across. I don't do woodworking myself, but figure this piece may have some value. Any ideas as to how I can find someone who is interested in a giant maple burl? Its approx. 43" in diameter, and is hollow to varying degrees inside. I will get some photos suitable for upload to this site and post.

links to burls

Burls, nah burls are totally worthless and highly over rated. If I lived closer I would take em off your hands as a favour.


This might help.

laburnia, where are you? A few of our members have mills and might be interested in that piece you have. Maybe post in the sawyers/mills section and see what hits?
