This log floated in after some winter flooding in E TN this year and thought it may have some use for a candy bowl. Not sure what kind of wood it is. It has since given me a little crack but I just call that character, plus it holds candy just fine. Log was so large I was able to get a few projects out of it. It is finished with mylands.
