The graft line stands out pretty good in this piece. 15” tall, 15” wide, 36” long, Watco Natural Oil finish.

A graft, when viewed on this scale is extraordinary. Isn’t nature great?...and beautiful! You’ve done a great job of taking advantage of the beauty of this piece. I would guess a bit of a challenge too with all of the changes in direction of the grain. Nicely done!

Hay that’s an interesting chunk of wood! It tells a real story. Glad it didn’t end up as firewood!

That came out beautifully . I wonder how big the saplings must be to graft them together ?

I believe the graft was done when the saplings were about 1/2” diameter.

shimster, I think I sold this one for around $150.00 at the Farmers Market about two summers ago. It was a nice piece.
