I just got 4 really large cypress knees and plan to use one or two these as part as part of my display when we do shows. Since I like to sculpt sinker cypress and the boxes sell well this seemed like a good addition to the display.

They are really interesting. I think they will add some wow factor to your booth. Once they walk in… ya got ‘em.

I can turn 4 good size pens with those. :D

If you use them as display in your shows, just make sure nobody can knock one over. Nice knees!

My niece has several of these and asked what I could make with them. I had no ideas at all so will anxiously await your magic!

I like these just as they are and don’t plan to make anything out of them because they have a natural character and beauty of their own. I have made lamps out of smaller ones in the past. However, these will be used for decorations in my booth and decorations in my office.
They are a bit over 6 ft. tall.

They are pretty ‘stately’ looking just as they are.

Wow Greg! Those will really spice up your display even more. They’ll be a lot to pack tho.
