When we moved into the new old house, the previous owner left me a ‘gift’ of sorts … there was a chunk of a log about 12” in diameter on a shelf in the garage. He was not a woodworker or turner, so I’m guessing it was destined for the fire pit.
I just had to finds out what the grain looked like, so I split it in two, and the photos are half of the result. I finished it with Mahoney’s Walnut Oil and buffed with the Beall System.
The only problem is, I can’t figure out what species it is. I saved a chunk of the bark … anybody have any ideas?
