Cool. You let the trees speak. Even they would compliment your work.

Thanks for the kind words. The challenge in this project was to figure out the best way to display the color variations and the natural character of the wood. The orange is heartwood rot, the purple is the fungal stain. The outside of the log has worm tunnels and pits as well. It has had a pretty tough life to get to this stage.
