    This is just a small percent of the burl, I couldn't imagine figuring shipping on some of these big burls here. Anyway this piece is 100% beautiful figured burl stock.
    Rough dimensions (This is not a square block)
    18"×9.5"×5"
    Will be shipping from 97420
    I'm guessing it's around 30-35lbs. I will get an exact weight after the wax sealer dries.
    $85+s&h

    If cody passes I might take it. If this one has a sister I would like to see it too.

    Okay I will keep you posted. I'm acquiring all the proper climbing gear and once I have all the right gear I will have a couple pick up bed loads of this stuff. Look at my other listings, I usually have multiple pieces per post so I don't end up posting close ups like i did on this listing but almost all the burl pieces I have listed look like this one. I still have some of the pieces from past listings too and am willing to haggle on my older listings.

    Hey Gman I went and took the weight, its 20lbs before boxing. I would say 22 to be safe which is quite a bit lighter than I thought originally.

    Quick quotes I looked up are way more than I wanna spend.

    Unless the smallest end of burl on the long edge can be cut to 12 inches and that wedge flipped to fit the rest of the box that is only 9.5. That assuming a LFRB. Would that work?

    Some experience not a whole lot and it's been a few years. I plan on doing a bit of climbing and setting riggins before I even think of taking my saw up. The gear is not cheap and its understandable sence I am putting my life out there.

    Yeah it's coming out around 65 for me. I think that is crazy, I do other online sales using a couple different sales apps and I know one if I shipped this through the apps account it would only cost $30 for shipping and that's any item 20-40lbs.

    The side I marked larger is 12x12 worse comes to worse I can ship in a LFRB and a MFRB and it would be right around $30

    Ok, it costs me 10% of the sale but I think I can figure a way around it. The app is called Mercari. Either that or if it's not to much hassle sell it for the minimum amount and do the rest on PayPal

    @gman2431 Yeah, it would be a little bit of a hassle I was really just trying to say I don't understand how prices can differ so much. I don't know what the WB High Councel would think of moving a sale over there either.
