Just another piece from some of the trees we had taken down. The grain runs the ENTIRE length of the trunk. We have so mush of this I don’t know what to do with it all.. but I’m sure I will think of something! :)

Free wood is good. What you’ve done with it even better. It’s a beauty.

Beautiful turning. The wood looks fantastic. Too bad it’s so far to East Tennessee. I’d saw some of the logs into lumber for you.

The endless variety and beauty of the grain truly do justice to your turning skills. Beautifully done, Jen!
