    All depends on what it looks like inside of course but I'm hoping to get a couple round end tables, some cribbage boards with the side parts of the the burl and although I don't have a lot of experience in turning , maybe a couple bowls

    Whichever lumber you wish to use for turning blanks, coat all sides with 2-3 coats of Anchorseal Classic.

    Finally got this cut into slabs. As we got close to the trunk it was pretty nice still so we made a couple more cuts and the entire thing is in slabs now.

    I have it in my basement and will put some anchorseal on it in the next couple days and then stack and sticker outside. Here's a few pictures
