So I went ahead and got the piece. Its approx 24” long and about 14.5” at the base. the center is rotted out about 1.5” in dia. Lots of burly looking lumps under the bark. At the other end it branches into 5 limbs that have all been cut short. One of the limbs was brought as well, but it has already cracked about 12” up in a spiral fashion. Could be salvageable for handles/small pieces. For now I plan to wax the ends and let it just sit for awhile. Hopefully the cracking will at least slow and give me some time to figure out some ideas. Seems self-destruction is the one thing EVERYBODY agrees on. We’ll see how it goes and hopefully I have some pics for ya. Thanks for the feed back.
