    Cherry Natural Edge w/Lichen

    This came from a big old cherry that got in the way of construction at Fort Eustis VA. My Arborist friend saved himself a $34/ton landfill fee by leaving it in my driveway . Roughly 10" x 5" with 1/2" walls. Two coats of Watco, buffed and Renaissance waxed. I like the way the Lichens hung in there through the turning process...just adds another dimension to the natural edge.

    still sings!

    That's a great piece of work, Ted. The lichens are a cool bonus.
