hello folks

I have bought this ash tree trunk recently, it was a bit big for me to handle at 3’ wide (at the GW tagged end) 6’ long and 4’ wide at the far end. It had been struck by lightning and had a very unusual textured surface under the bark.
The bow is the first piece i have made with it and is nearly 10” tall.
