That is WAY cool! I love unusual wood. It ain’t a blemish, it’s “Character.”

I guess the reincarnation didn’t go so well for that bird. Lol

Amazing how nature does things. More amazing you caught it.

Better than the potato that looks like Nixon for sure!

Here are a few more from the wall of fame at work.

I found this log in my firewood pile:

And after a little while in the workshop I found this inside it:

It’s 95mm wide, 300mm long and 8mm thick…Now it just needs a project.

Here is my contribution, not any where near as impressive as those above but never the less

My son and I were cutting timber to make him a potting table

The material was lots of recycled pieces

As we were cleaning up sadly we found somebodys cat which had been hiding in the timber.

We gave it a prod with the marking pen but it didnt move
