This came for a log that I picked up on the side of the road, drove by it several times before I decided to stop and get it. I was very surprised when I cut into it. The size is 12” x 5”. Lacquer finish.

Nice execution of a class shape, and the spalting is just crazy, must have been a PIA to work with.
