I need a word to describe this… all I can pull up that comes close is, “haunting”. You have captured the wild, untamed look of Mother Nature, herself.

Wow that is one fancy looking piece of timber, the spalting is amasing, very nice form, looks like a piece of space debris with some re-entry burns
Well done :))

Great job Andrew. It must have taken a very steady hand to make a piece like that. Well done.

Very Very nice. That piece of oak is one unusual piece. I am always amazed by wood’s glories!
