Default Resawing a Burl

Cutting up a Mesquite Burl and sending part of it across the pond.
Here's a few pic's of how I cut one up.
Hope you enjoy

Hey Gary, I'll take a slab of that Mesquite Burl. It should make for some nice pens or whatever else you want to turn. I've never tried to resaw burl wood of any kind simply because I probably wouldn't know where to get the best out of the burl.

Rolph that's one of the chances you take with a burl----no one knows what's inside.
I figure about 30% of the burl is lost just cutting it up between sawdust and scrap.
oh

My pond isn't very big. Would cost you very little to send to me.

I do mine a bit different and it sometimes leads to un uniform blanks (expecially after drying) thanks for the insight!
