I have just cut into a elm burl. I have very large chunks of this if someone is looking to buy bulk let me know. Or if you are looking for a certain size I will keep my eye out if you let me know what you are looking for. Very nice burl.

Courtland,

Do you know what species of elm? I lack elm burl in my collection. Don't need anything big (padded envelope) but would consider buying any size flat rate if it works in your favor. My samples finish at 3" wide by 6" long by 1/2" thick.

That center stub in the 8th picture down, could of used a coping saw and cut that out for a nice stopper / egg blank and continued to turn as usual.

I don't have any elm burl, so interested same as stated before. Post the picture of the end grain, might be useful. Did the property owner know the ID or common name? It looks like Siberian, however a few other possibilities exist.

The homeowner had no idea what it is the reason I say that is just from what the wood looks like and smells like. I guess this is the closest I have to end grain photo

I would be interested in a medium flat rate size piece of that. I think they are 8 x 11 x 6 but I would be making a bowl so 8 ish square by 5 ish deep
