Started this project a long time ago – finally got it done. Ponderosa Pine “root” that looked to me like the “Kraken” from Pirates of the Caribbean movie. We have a bunch of these types of roots on our property, but finding one still pretty much intact is a challenge. Most have rotted over the years to a point of not being of any use. Nobody wants to burn these in fireplaces or woodstoves because of all the resin that accumulates in the core over time. With luck, I found this one, and this is the result. Took one coat of brush on Spar Gloss Marine varnish, and two more coats of the same varnish in spray form. Sorry about the quality of the photos – I ain’t known for my photography, that’s fer sure. Thanks for looking.
