Had the garden tree felled 4 years ago and decided to carve a permanent reminder of what was there. Measures approx 7 feet x 3 feet x 4 feet. In it’s 4th year and just sanded and oiled after a tough winter. Mushroom removal tomorrow!

Currently up for sale to anyone who can collect it, but keep in mind that it weighs over 800kg

UPDATE

Sold and took a few pics of the task! We did well :) No hoists….just man power

By the way, you do deliver, right?

Beautiful piece! I like the sleek design not to metion the gorgeous grain. Just add a couple of wheels and you’re mobile! You DO deliver, right????

I want it and a cup of coffee maybe a book. That would be great on a spring day like today.

I really like that design, as mmh stated, just add a couple of wheels, like a small truck axle, and it is mobile.
That wood grain is something else, makes me wish I could try it on for size and spend a couple of hours
deciding on a way to get it to Montana. Thank you for sharing. Just checked your listing and you must
have dealt with customers before, the way you specified local pickup..

Thanks Gus.

Auction has just 24 hours left to run and has had a massive amount of interest. Most serious buyers have contacted me with their own take on how to move it to the vehicle so will just let it roll I think. The axle and wheel idea is top and if I ever get to do another one of these I will ensure it’s part of the early design.

Any of you guys out there use Facebook? My page is getting close to having 100 LIKES which will enable me to market my products a little better. Would appreciate a LIKE from anyone on here who uses it.
