    Several years dry. May be a bit dry for turning.

    Very minimal checking.

    Sizes up to 4 foot diameter and 4-6" thick.

    I have two bandsaws.....a Jet vertical and a NorwoodLM2000.

    Any suggestions?

    They won't be too dry for all turners, box, game call or pen turners for example. (probably more)

    got any pics? never seen a box elder burl before.

    Are you asking how to cut it up? Or where to market the slab? Or both?

    Both, sort of. I can sell to treeline...the supplierers for lots of carvers.

    In fact....I cut a fair amount of wood they later sell.

    I don't know if I should cut it with or against the grain. For carvers anyway.

    Table tops....or jewlery boxes are a bit less stringent.

    I would guess not, seeing how he posted this nearly two years ago.
