So I got this truck bed load of myrtle wood burl for 300$ sounded like a good deal to me but was wondering what you guys think of that price.My myrtl wood burl bowls sold well over x-mas so I said the hell with it and went for it.Now I got a s--t load of bowls to turn.

That seems like a good deal to me, but not familiar with that species. Let's see the figure in it.

You'll have to turn it before coming up with a price right?

I'd say that's a good deal. Depending on the wood and number of blanks you can get you should make out pretty good

I wasn't familiar with that one either so I did a quick search. If what you have looks like what I saw then you do have something other folks will want. Once you get it milled so you can check for eyes and grain then you can set a price. I am on another site where folks are always looking for wood like this.

Nice haul. :thumbsup:
