Last winter, we have a small piece of a tree trunk from a firewood delivery laid on its side, because the wood was just beautiful and I knew a same purpose at the sight. The wood was then dried for one year and so I asked my husband, it me please to cut into slices (because I’m afraid of chainsaws, because my knowledge of handling missing) He told me from the piece of wood 4 slices of a ca 3 , 5 cm thickness excised. Two of them unfortunately I could not use, because the wood was torn on the side and the bark is broken when sawing. One of them was beautiful and I have used them for this “moose in the forest.” I hope you like it.

I really like that idea! I have a bunch of oaks that came down in a storm that I’m in the process of cutting up – mostly just for firewood, but I’m saving some choice pieces (a lot of it is spalted) for other projects, particularly for the lathe… It would be pretty easy to slice off some thinner pieces and do something similar. I see a good opportunity for some quick xmas presents that I could whip out on the scroll saw :)

Hmmmm, glue a round piece of cork on the back and these would make for pretty interesting coasters. Nice!
