This is a “cookie” cut from a tree across a friend’s driveway. About a year or so aged, which I realize might not be quite long enough for it to have fully done what it’s going to, but I’m watching it closely :/ . I’ve added one butterfly so far from what I think is rosewood? A gift from another friend. I’ll be adding one or two more. I originally thought about adding some to the bottom, just to be sure, but I’ll end up filling the rest of the checking with epoxy and purple seashells :0 .
I’d like to make a thick, three legged base with M&T joints and sort of a rounded edges look. And I’ll most likely end up finishing with “tung oil” (formby’s…it’s what I have).
