    What am I supposed to call this?

    I am not sure what I should call this because it is different than anything I have ever see. I cut this from a mud crusted piece I got on the last redwood trip.

    The wood has lace figure with no eyes. It's not supposed to be like that.



    Here is a photo with Lace burl in the front and the weird piece in back.



    I need to make up a name for what to call it just in case I find some more redwood like this.

    Lace Redwood burl always has eyes.
    So I was trying to come up with a name for this.
    Like maybe......Blind Lace since it has no eyes, or.....fishnet lace because the lace figure in this looks like fishnet stockings.
    Or maybe just another mutated freak of nature.

    I like fishnet lace. Because that's what it looks like!

    How about 'Stefan's wood'?

    So far I am leaning towards SpikeC's opinion. "Fishnet Lace".
    It was a really beat up piece of wood but if I am able to get several blocks from it, I might be able to name one Stefan's wood.
    I like the Freddy Kruger's Face Lace, but not everyone has as good of a sense of humor as we do.
