what is the ambient temperature of where the project is ??
if you have used Alumilite before, you should be familiar with the product.
have you experienced any softness in your previous projects ?
a little more info on the age and storage of the resin will also help.
I got a small kit from Michael’s a few years ago and had satisfactory results.
(I like it for the convenient 1:1 mixing ratio).
I would suggest to warm it in the sun or low heat oven. (90 -100*f).
give it a few more days – test it occasionally for hardness and cure.

is the burl fully encapsulated in the resin or just to fill a few spots.
