It's a Duck, maybe an Eagle, Naw it's a knot off a log.! - 5 replies

Out cutting some wood today and a old downed maple in the foreground caught my eye so I went over, it was pretty punky but it had a cool knott on the side so I cut it off. I mounted it to a light board for a better perspective.

The 8 sided post is 8” long and I drilled a 1/2” hole thru the center for the front screw to go thru. Instead of...
