    Hopefully this will be fully sawn and milled by this weekend.

    Cheers

    The top burl and the root system are Box Elder,the bottom one is Maple. I have the full maple tree getting dropped in about 2 weeks, been dead and still standing for 3-4 years, it is pretty hard stuff. Sorry, i posted this on Del's page because he will end up with a bunch of it. The burl in the top pic is about 16" and it goes completely through the roots

    Can I have that center section? I'll even be gracious and pay for shipping.

    That looks to be some really killer stuff.
