All burled up and no place to turn

Shawn - in ID
>I have a large black cherry burl (24" diameter) and a second one a bit smaller ~14". I have a Vicmarc mini. One day within a couple of years I'll have the money to buy a big-boy lathe. Is this size burl something special that I should save or should I just go ahead and saw it into 'my size' pieces? I do have enough other wood to keep me busy for a while.
