Would you ever think that this was hiding in a rotten, wood-wormy “blank”. A crab-apple tree was blown down on my brother-in-laws farm a few years ago. I’m going back up again next Saturday to search for more.
I darkened the piece with antique pine wood stain in between sanding and (forgive me) I am delighted
with the way it finished. The photo’s dont really do justice to the way the grain catches the light.
I put a small strip of ash into the split (pic 5) for contrast as I didn’t want it to look like I was trying to disguise something.
It’s 5 1/2” o/d at the top and 4”tall. Thanks for getting this far LJ’s. Feel free to post a comment.
