10"x 8"x 16", wood
Everything has a story, a life before your meeting. This was a chunk of old timber that may have been part of a large old growth tree. There was a growth ring in it that showed me that year must have been a tough one. It had weakened the block so that I was able to take a hammer and knock off the two top corners of the piece. I then made a few simple wedges and tapped them in following the weak year ring. It then became a tree once again.
It's important to be close to our surrounding.
