Not something you find walking the beach but I love the concept. Beautiful work.

Florida, Gulf Coast, Sarasota area? That sand looks distinctively familiar. Looks like you should be drinking some tropical cocktail from that while soaking up the sun. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

The Madrone I am turning is from Gates Pass Oregon. It comes to me wet and I turn it wet . I start the drying process in the microwave. I then bag it in a paper bag and take it in and out for several days watching it change shape . Cuts like butter . Here is a link giving you the technical name and type of tree
