Hickory Burls

A few weeks ago, I was driving down the driveway when I looked to my left at a tree that has been dead and lying across the creek for as long as we've lived here. For some reason, this was the first time I had ever noticed that the thing was thoroughly covered with burls! Jackpot! So far, I've cut about 1/3 of them off and moved them into the garage to dry. They should make some amazing turning stock - I can't wait to dig into them! The other cool part that I should have expected was that while cutting the hickory, it smelled just like barbeque. Awesome!
