My burl slabs are drying flat so far.  The only problem I have is that there are some bark inclusions.  As it dries, it comes apart at those inclusions.

You're killing me @Jeff . You are working on my sympathy, it is not gonna work. I was working in that area today and watched it again. No activity at all. However, I do note that will all the TSI and habitat work I have been doing a rabbit showed up on my trail cam for the first time last night. I have been making tight brush piles hoping these critters would find a home, and maybe they have. The habitat opportunities are also important to me and I consider the birds, small critters, foxes, deer etc to try to make a happy place for them. Even the insects hold a place. I have no guilt.

Takes the same amount of time to take off a pair of socks as it does to skin those critters! Crock pot and gooe to go.

Funny you mention that! One of my minor improvements down at the sawmill shed is to add a 2 burner stove this spring to make coffee. I suppose it would be no problem to add a stew pot and let it simmer as I milled. win-win  8)
