As a whole burl the price is done by weight? Some of them are quite large.... I would guess they weigh at least 75 ps. How would I ship it? Also, does the moisture content effect price? I purchased a moisture meter and most of the burls are less than 7%, however I do have a few that are in the 30% range. I imagine it effects weight and will shrink as it dries? I apologize if these are silly questions. So much I did not know. You all have been great. Thanks in advance.
JUST assuming that your might offer some of your Mesquite Burl for sale.
My approach would be to cut one or two of the large Burls apart at there thinnest spots. Now you have 3 or 5 smaller Burls. Weigh each one and decide on a price per pound and offer a few of the Uncut Burls at maybe a few dollar less per pound.
If you choose to fill custom size orders there is an amazing time and labor factor that must be added to the sale price.
Again if I where you I wood horde it all for my self but If you do desire to sale any or all I would definitely be a costumer.
Prince Hamlet - To buy or not to buy that is not the question but only to suffer the slings and arrows of time weighting for your answer.
To sale or not to sale?
IFF you decide to sell at any point, whole or in any size chunks, I would line up to be a customer. Mesquite burl is Amazing!
IFF you're looking for input, I would prefer pieces at least 1.5" thick and >12" long on some dimension, but that's just me.
In the meantime, posting mote photos of the beautiful wood would be highly encouraged. :-)
