    This piece of wood came from a crotch in the tree that took a direct hit from lightning about 20 foot up, the pictures below are from the same tree but the wood was only about 6 foot up

    I'm not neither but he turned the one part of the finial an I did the base of the finial, he's a disabled veteran with a stroke. It was good for him to do one part of it
