Here is one of the pieces of driftwood that I picked up when the girls (my two daughters and wife) and I went to The Falls of the Ohio River Park. This is a Pine Knot that was in the river for a long, long time and then washed ashore. Although knots have unique shapes on their own, the shape of this knot was aided by the sandy river bottom and the churning of the current. The mixture of water and then sun also gave this piece a nice, grayish tent.

I really like this; you’ve taken something that would be considered “junk” or “useless” and transformed it into a fine object. Good work!

-- Have a blessed day!
