This is the root ball and some branches of a desert Ironwood that blew over a couple years ago. This is going to be a challenge to figure the best way to mill it down into solid pieces and hope it does not shatter completely.

Oooh, me likey.
Good luck breaking it down. Probably some nice looking ‘skeet in there.
Wish I lived closer. I’d be a buyer, were you a seller.

Just have him drop that from the bucket 6 or 7 feet off the ground. Then take the pieces now that they are more manageable over to the lumber storage area until I drive over this weekend with my trailer.

Wow. Let us know what you come up with! It’s a phenomenally generous act of God to have such a tree end it’s days within the purview of a woodworker. Congratulations!
