First a question…as a fellow lj, which to you looks better. The pale wood which is just plain sanded wood or the yellowish color wood is with a coat of tund oil. Later I am going to wax a piece of the plain sanded wood to see how that will look.

When leaving work I saw that a coworker had a truck load of fire wood and out of curiosity I asked what type of wood he had…in the end he gave me a decent piece of sycamore. I took it home and through the band saw I cut it down and through carving and chiseling out came this. I chose this piece specifically because of the “worm holes” in the wood and since the outer portion of the tree would reveal itself in the outcome.

I did find some red in the tree and I am not sure if that would be the “tree’s blood” or what. Do you know what that would be?

Thanks for Looking
