I picked up a piece of this wood on a January below zero day, when I was grooming snowmobile trails. I must have weighed about 10 pounds, because Black Ash grows in the swamp. It took about 4 years to air dry.
It’s 13” high & 3” wide. A dark Walnut Watco finish.

Very nice, and to think you got the wood in nature makes it so special in my book. Those flowers look real too are they?

These are my ”Sweeties” contribution, plastic. She has bad allergies so everthing is fake in our house, but they never wilt, or need watering. LOL

Well, the wood pieces sure aren’t fake Dick. Just beautiful use of wood as usual. Great work!
