Looks great! Love the wood! Some of the best wood comes from the firewood pile. Half the fun of splitting firewood is all the good stuff you find inside. It’s a major source of wood for me.

A fire wood pile is always a good place for hidden treasures. Good save. Very nice.

Turn rather than burn. That is some incredible grain for oak!
