Very interesting! I’m curious why you referred to it as “resawing.” It looks like the first time cut.

The face is very cool but man, that is some gorgeous wood! I love Black Walnut :-))

I’m one of those people who see faces in abstract things so I see a creature with a brown bushy beard.

Now the hard part—- letting them lay until they tell you what they are going to be.
