A friend had a large number of Maple trees come down in a bad storm and he told me to take all I wanted. Maple is not common in this area so needless to say I was quite excited. And I finally got to use that chainsaw I bought last October.
Unfortunately, LOML isn't nearly as excited about it and I don't have a lot of space for storing it. What you see in the picture is what I cut up today. They range from about 6" in diameter to 12" or 13".
The two near the back end of the truck have what I hope will be some nice burls. Of course, I have now idea what to do with burls but it's nice to have them.
Any suggestions as to how to preserve/prepare them would be appreciated.
