I was fortunate to come across a tree that had been struck by lighting and damaged. The golf course that I got it from, had cut it down and was going to chip it up for mulch. I like poplar because of the difference in colour variation between heart wood and sap wood. This solid piece was 28 inches high and about 14 inches at the base. It took approximately 50 hours beginning by roughing it out with a chainsaw and finishing it with foredom and bur bits. I finished the piece with a watco stain. Thank you everyone so far on previous postings, for your kind comments.
