Hey folks, first time posting here, appreciate any advice you can give. I've
acquired a couple of pieces of oak burl, deadfall tree. It's been seasoning
in my garage for 6 years or so (actually it's just been sittin there with me
bein too afraid to do something stupid with it)
I'm thinking I'd like to use this burl as part of several door panels on a
hutch but the things are not exactly flat, dimension type lumber. 2 Pieces
measure roughly 5 feet long and 4 feet wide at the widest point, 12 inches
or so at the narrowest, average thickness is little better than 3/4.
My Questions - Can this stuff be resawn? Lacking the equipment myself, would
a mill or shop be willing to do it for me for a price? What kind of
thickness could I expect to get from the process?
Last thing is, how stable will the panel be after resawing? Does burl move
any more or any less than straight grain stuff?
Thanks in advance, and by the way, I've enjoyed reading this group, wish I
had looked up a long time ago.
