I found a cherry burl that is bigger than a 5 gallon bucket. I was wondering whats the best way to cut this the ge the most out of it and to start the drying process?

I would cut it into bowl blanks or hollow vessel blanks and then rough turn them or finish turn them. I would not try to dry it. You will probably get cracks if you try to dry it. If you want smaller pieces I would cut them up and then seal the ends or dip the whole thing in wax to keep it fresh.
