Nice work! You did right by that gorgeous wood.

Nice! Love the grain and color; I know those must have been fun to sand?
Now where is that chisel

Thanks all.

On the small one, it did have a larger base on it at one point . . . a short loss of focus can have lasting impact.

And sanding is no fun. I really tried to avoid it, but never got the perfect finishing cut so did have to do a bit. That said, glad they're done. I have another few in process, now that all have dried from rough turn over a year ago. This was a tree that had burls up and down the trunk, so quite a few. A neighbor is getting ready to take out another with a 38" diameter trunk that's only 9' tall and has issues, but it's burl up and down as well, so looking forward to getting that one too.

Wish I had your neighbors.
