Trash or Treasure ?

Have you ever been drawn to do something that is out of character for you and don’t know why? This is my latest occurrence of just that. It always seems to revolve around wood that I pull out of the burn box several times for unknown reasons. Tell me what you think. Trash or Treasure. Be brutal if need be, I can take it. If you really like it send me a big check :-)

Neither trash nor treasure this be! It’s a work of art! Classify it as such! Very unique look!

CHECK, I really like it. I do have to admit that I would call it art, and very good art.

Trash. Send it to me and I’ll throw it away. :-)

Kinda looks,to me, like the open jaws of a sea-creature breaking the surface. I like it.

p.s. You can call it “breaking the surface” if you want to. When people ask. I wont give out.

p.p.s. Bamasawduster – never realised 3 lefts made a right ‘til a few mins ago. Had to stand up and try it just to make sure. Might make a few shekels in the pub tonight with that one. Thanks.

Two Thumbs Up! Treasure indeed, Speednork!

You were right on spot to have spent the sanding and finishing time on this natural beauty!

My account is low, otherwise you would get the big check or rather an e-mail from PayPal…. lol

Well thanks guys I really appreciate the kind words. I didn’t really expect to any takers on this but it was fun to ask. Maybe I will auction it off someday for a worthy cause. ( my shop refrigerator has been sounding funny lately, that would be a worthy cause” :-)
