Last Xmas present… weird wood vessel.
Made this from wood that I found. Still standing, but quite rotten on the outside. Didn’t turn this like the other one. Cut a piece, drilled, cleaned with a stiff wire brush, and sealed with satin poly.
So I’m pretty sure this is locust, but I’ve never seen something like this before. The same abnormality where every branch met the trunk. There were several of these dead trees, both down and standing, in one area. I still have a few pieces.
I looked quickly online, but couldn’t find anything similar. Any thoughts of what this weird wood condition may be?
