I was getting ready for winter and splitting some wood that I have just got form the bush. I had the axe raised ready to split this one piece and had to stop and admire the grain on this wood looking at it from the top. I found it quite interesting so I put it to the side and thought one day I might be able to do something with it. Well the day came and decided to make two natural edge bowls and give them as gift to a friends father for helping me out in the hunting season. I’m sure glad I didn’t chop it up and burn it because now it sits proudly on a mantle with pride. I think it might be cottonwood but I not too sure really. If anyone has any idea please let me know. Thanks
