Looks like a good solid trunk. Sometimes with big elm trees, they will be rotten in the center. Looking forward to your creations from it.

The story of this elm (and the majority of elms over the last decades) is so sad, but it’s nice to see it being put to use. Can’t wait to see what you make from the slabs.
