This project took over a year to complete. I found this root ball stuck on the reef off of Fort Hase Beach in Hawaii. I spent several hours trying to wrestle the waterlogged behemoth out of the water, across the beach and into my truck. Of course everyone looked on at me like I was crazy and didn’t offer to help, so I ended up doing it all by myself. (not wise).

Once home I let it air dry for several months before power-washing and letting it dry again. All the while I was trying to see what this wanted to be. I didn’t want to touch it until I had a solid plan.

Once the plan came to me I could then begin cutting and sanding.

I gave this piece to a dear friend of mine and it is proudly displayed at the entrance of him home.

Cool. Did you finish the wood with anything?

I sealed it with an all weather sealer that was advertised to allow wood to naturally age. It did not change the look of the wood at all so I was quite happy with the result.
