Sigh as much as I would LOVE to be able to buy a ‘GIANT,’ I am currently in the process of moving so I am looking at a small/medium size piece. (6-10in Dia) depending on the price.

Hi groy87 – I have a dozen or more roots sizes ranging from 8”-10” around-ish to 16”-20” around-ish or larger. Each one is carefully hand picked, well-shaped, typically chosen for some very unusual feature and most sort of stand up all buy themselves. You can see faces, animals, dwarves, dinosaurs, claws, & other things in the wood…. I was going to try carving to bring them out of the wood, but instead these got buried in the back of my storage unit for YEARS! So – I guess they might as well be sold as I don’t know when I will ever get to doing anything with them. Let me know if you are interested – I can send pix.

I may be interested in all of them. If you could send me a few pics that would be great. I am in Pennsylvania. Use my email address as this forum is confusing to me. dwalshbowlmaker@yahoo.com

Hi Groy87 and the rest of you guys/gals. I have a few manzanita burl, some whole, some slabs, and a few other species of wood that might grab you…..redwood, buckeye, maple, a little ironwood..once in a while. At the risk of being accused of “blatant self promotion” ; ) ......I’m here: http://www.rockbswesternwoods.com/
Easier to communicate directly through email address on the site. I do some “lurking” here on LJs but can’t check back as often as I’d like. Hope to get acquainted with a few of you. Rocky…rockb

-- I know the Creator of wood......Yeah, I'm a name dropper. : )

Have your say...
