Vance,

Here’s a picture of a couple of cypress stumps I picked up a few years ago. I haven’t done anything with them except move them around the yard, so I’d be happy to trade you a “cookie” cut from one of them for something a little different from your stash of Tennessee wood.

These are about 3’ tall and 12-14” diameter at the top. At that point the stump is basically round. Moving down a bit the roots buttresses start to spread out and look sort of like a free form sculpture of a star or an octupus…

Most clock’s I’ve seen made of these were 18 – 24” or larger in total size and generally about 2 – 3” thick. They were generally finished with a glossy epoxy finish like a bar finish.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve got and I’ll be glad to get it to you so you can make your Mom a clock…

You could try acadian hardwoods, but I don’t know if they go as far up as where you are at.

TCC and Joey,

Vance is looking for a “cookie” from a cypress stump to make one of the free form live edge clocks.

I’ve got some stumps and plan to cut him a cookie this weekend.

Steel looking, and by? I’m having a problem with what you’re wanting.
Do you want cypress boards or cross-cut logs?
“Still looking and buy”?
Not tryin’ to be an a$$.
