Fantastic job. Outstanding use of grain and bark inclusion for an artistic flair!

They just keep getting better!

Keep it up.

looks good,
are you doing anything to keep it from warping as it dries or are you leaving it to see what nature has to say?

Scrappy hit it right on the nose. You just keep getting better. Nice piece of ash, too. ;)
