Every year I donate to the Hospital Foundation for the hospice house. I gave them a choice and this is what they wanted. The top is American Elm with black walnut danish oil. It 24”×48” and 20” tall.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Well done, Monte. I hope it attracts bids worthy of the piece.

Wow that is some nice figuring on the elm. Reminds me of topography lines and you incorporated the “river” to match the grain so it has an optical illusion that there are a couple of hills there too. Very nice

I can’t believe how well that Elm took to the Danish oil. Nice work. The stone is very enhancing.
