Doc, if that is a mesquite burl, dry, it will be as hard as the hubs of Hades.

We finally got to sawing yesterday.
Jacob came over with his swing mill/slabber and we got through this burl end of the log.

The log was so tall, we had to block up the mill to clear the first cut.



 



 

The full length pieces are 5 1/2. And we cut everything 2 1/2.

We made 14 cuts total. The center of the log was hollow, so the center slabs came apart. Which was ok with us! As mulberry is very heavy. We guessed the bigger pieces were 250- 300 pounds. 
Fun fact - Jacob (aka Teenswinger) has been sawing for me for over 16 years. Thats more than half of his life. 🤣🤣

That is some of the finest, most beautiful wood that I have ever seen.  I am a fan of our native hardwoods and do not care for the foreign exotics, no matter how dramatic.  I love mulberry.  I have a very nice one about 20 in diameter but I am loathe to cut it down.

WDH, Im happy to have this. And am hoping it will dry ok while I wait to use it. 

Isnt mulberry good for smoking? Meat, that is? Could this sawdust be good for someone?
