Sanding Thuya Burl

Dave Winters, Steamboat Springs, CO
>Anybody using Thuya Burl? I'm having a helluva time sanding this stuff. It must be full of pitch, because the sandpaper loads up INSTANTLY. Crepe rubber helps clean it up a little, but jeez!
Any suggestions for keeping paper clean on resinous woods?
Thanks--
