spruce burl question

kevinT in T Bay
>I picked up 8 spruce burls the other day. Most of them the bark is falling off. I peeled the rest of the bark off to find a lot of spots that are punky.
Question. Are they usable? and if so, should I use that polycrylic stuff from Lee Valley to harden these areas first? or do the alcohol bath first? Another question:, Should I have them in the shop, or store outside till I start either proceess? Thanks Kevin T in T Bay
