Hollo lumberjocks members, I’m new to the forum and I have some questions on how to stabilize Manzanita burl?

I was out in northern California a couple weeks ago looking for material to make the Natural Bent Cane, that I make.
I use Manzanita for those canes I make, while I was cutting my supply I noticed some burl on the ground and realized what I had come across a hard to get and what others would call rare product for woodcrafting.
now mind you I have never worked with any kind of burl, but as a wood worker I knew what I had found was worth harvesting.

So what do you think I did? That’s right I harvested as much as I could find and I found a lot!

This is one burl my foot is on, and I have big feet!

so I’m asking for help and thanks for taking to time to look at my blog.!!!

Now I’m here looking for advise on how to stabilize this rare hard to come by without killing the tree burl,

These are the milled ones

it seems all the pictures are upside down don’t know why or how to fix them, this is a small example of those burls

I’d suggest pentacryl.
