For the past 6 years, I've had my eye on a mulberry tree that is just loaded with burls.  The owner was finally ready to get rid of it and said you can have it if you get someone to cut it down.  So, a friend and I went together and paid another friend to cut it down.  Two big trunks on the tree.  So he got one and I got the other.  Here are some pictures of the work in progress.  As things would have it, had to go buy another chair saw to help cut it into blanks.  (Stihl M362 with a 25" bar.)  Cheesy  After three days, I'm still working on prepping all of the wood.

Here is a picture of a few of the sections cut up and waiting to have the ends sealed.

Very nice Steve! 

Do you coat the pieces with Anchor seal or paraffin?   And if you use paraffin, what is your source?

I've got so many that the ones in the shop area will be coated with paraffin and the ones I will store outside will be coated with Anchor Seal.  The reason for the difference is that the Anchor Seal will be easier to use outside than trying to heat up the paraffin.

Don't spare the endseal on that purty burly wood.  By the way endseal is a water based form of paraffin--it can be doubled coated or cut with water depending on your wood and moisture content.

Jeff, I do like the saw.  I borrowed a MS 261 with a 20" bar and was not pleased with it at all.  It just got bogged down way too easy.  Glad I did that before I bought a new saw.  So I looked at the professional grade and am very happy with it.  It handled this mulberry with out any trouble.

Mulberry is one if the hardest woods found here in the eastern half of the US.
Very pretty yellow wood, and with those burls should be some interesting grain.
You have every reason to double gloat.
