So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus)

.
Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar

.
Slice it on a bandsaw

.
And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax

.
You never can judge a book by its cover
