Found this in a fallen softwood maple tree that someone had cut up into firewood. The owner said I could take a few pieces to turn.

someone put that bottle in the crotch of a young tree and it’s been there ever since.

If my chainsaw was working, I’d cut the piece out and carve that wood into some fingers around that bottle.

Borrow a chainsaw Russel that would be an excellent idea, if you could pull it off. I would question the condition of the wood in the area, but I also realize from your postings that you are likely the man who could stabilize the weathered wood. From your second picture I can almost see the hand and wrist, the power of suggestion.

Russell, You ought to put this into one of those unusual tree blogs on Lumberjocks. You should do something interesting and creative with it.

It’s gone Charles. It was in a huge trunk section and they picked it up already. I’m taking my chainsaw to get it fixed up and it’ll be in my trunk from now on.

My brother is a rafting guide on the upper Hudson River in NY. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s they ran logs down through the Hudson River gorge and there are old logger campsites dotted along the river where he rafts. One day he found just the lip of what he thinks is an 18 inch cast iron frying pan sticking out from a 3 foot diameter maple tree. Some logger cook a hundred years ago hung it on a nail on that tree and left it there. I don’t think he’ll be getting it back any time soon.
