Hello fellow woodworkers, couple days ago, someone started a thread called 'Crazy Idea', where we discussed drying wood. I went on explaining how I dry my wood, since I go in the forest and cut my own wood. Then someone added this: Stuff like this just makes you wonder......"hmmmmm maybe I can do this too? hmmmmmm Thanks Fennek......another possible project to ponder .....LMAO as if there aren't too many already I think you should, I really think you should. 3 bucks of gas, one very sore body, and 5 hours later, I came up with this. I think it is Sugar Maple. What you see here is only 1/4 of the burl since I cut it up in 4 pieces to be able to pull it out of the woods. This piece weighs about 80 pounds (multiply that by 4) thats a hell lot of burl. So go ahead, call me crazy, I like it..
