Was visiting my sister in Sunny Florida, the week before she had a Papaya tree cut down and saved me the "log" or 3' of it (8" dia.). it is more of a stalk than a tree, and as it dries it shrinks to a rather pithy center.
Question is, has anyone tried to stabalize this and perhaps turn some project from the mass? Or is it a waste of time?
I brought that 3' chunk home with me and there it sets in my garage, getting all moldy, etc.
I thought about cutting off a chunk about the size to turn a small bowl and soak it in Alcohol and see what transpires. Any suggestions?
