So, I drug this big old root ball/stump/crotch thing home from work about six months ago...thinking it might make some cool handle wood. The problem with this is I have no idea how to begin cutting it up in a way that might show the best figure (if there is any). I don't even know for sure what kind of wood it is, lol. Here's a picture:
Any ideas?? The chunk of concrete is a 1'x1'x14" pier, for size reference.
