On the right (left trunk shown for scale) is a 100 year old manzanita trunk. These are cut for fire breaks, road maintenance, and other projects so don’t freak out that we killed a 100 year old tree just for us! The trunk is on it’s way from CA and should arrive late this week.
We plan to make more manzanita slab bowls from this piece – and perhaps some other artistic turnings. We’ll be offering these pieces once they are completed and properly dried in our 2014 issue bowls.
