Wife's age + our number of children X the years married = 4582

I had to go 'round and 'round to come up with a number.First, the FF log calculator does not have Mulberry as a selection. So I GTS the specific gravity of Red Mulberry and came up with several different numbers.So then I dug out my Identifying Wood by Bruce Hoadley to see what he had to say. According to Bruce, the SG of Red Mulberry is .66 - which is the same as Honey Locust in his book.The FF calculator does have Honey Locust. So that's the log species I plugged in. The log is 6' long and 40" on the small end and 60ish" on the big end. But the burl seems more fat around the middle so I upped the center log size to 52" just to be safe.Whew! The guestimated weight is 5398lbs. It didn't feel that heavy on the trailer, but it sure looked the part driving through town.

Gee Swamp, you did all that reckoning and all I did was look at it and think of a number in my head. Actually my guess was closer than I would have thought. Mighty nice piece of wood, that's for sure.

Old Greenhorn, I’ll go ahead and get it weighed this morning. You just sit right here and wait for me to get back.

Swamp donkey,I’ve not seen birch burl on the market. Is it common? I’ll need to look it up
