I pulled this bald cypress from the river a few years ago. I can count almost 90 rings out of what’s left. So given the age and the size of the piece, I’ve never wanted to just hack it up and not make something unworthy for what it is. It has sat under cover for about three years and I’ve yet to have a single idea I am comfortable with.
I’ve recently learned of scraping through a few YouTube videos. I think that some of the root structure would be suitable for a sculpture but I am concerned that in doing so, I destroy the rest of it.
I’ve also thought of a sofa table and that’s all I’ve come up with.
Can anyone offer some advice please? It stands about 4 1/2’- 5’ tall and about 6’+ at the widest on the roots. It came pretty close to sinking the little aluminum boat too. It wasn’t easy getting the thing in the boat either.
