    All depends on what it looks like inside of course but I'm hoping to get a couple round end tables, some cribbage boards with the side parts of the the burl and although I don't have a lot of experience in turning , maybe a couple bowls

    Whichever lumber you wish to use for turning blanks, coat all sides with 2-3 coats of Anchorseal Classic.

    Finally got this cut into slabs. As we got close to the trunk it was pretty nice still so we made a couple more cuts and the entire thing is in slabs now.

    I have it in my basement and will put some anchorseal on it in the next couple days and then stack and sticker outside. Here's a few pictures

    Unfortunately that does not show grain pattern that is reminiscent of a burl. More likely a scarred over section where a limb was.

    I’ve encountered similar situations many times when milling.

    It definitely looks like an over zealous repair job based on the knot in the last picture that looks to be the center of it all. Still pretty unique grain pattern and I'll make something out of it when the time comes.
