One picture is worth.....

....80 years. An old stand cedar. The top had been eaten by a porcupine and it was slowly dying. Had it fallen over by itself, it would have taken out several younger cedars. Still......sniff, sad. Steve said he will make a table top out of this piece......maybe in 2020.

Damn that porcupine.

I never really liked them anyway.

That is really cool. It will make a great table top..in 2020. I love the smell of those logs.

Porcupines eat trees?

What is it with woodland critters wanting to destroy our pretty things?

I've seen these in specialty stores priced in the 1000's. Lucky you.

Rosemary, that will be a gorgeous table!!!

I saw some in a store in NYC two years ago that would hardly compete.

That will be a super table... just don't invite the porcupine family over for tea.

Look at that gorgeous pice of wood!
It'll make a fine table!

I am always saddened when I see a great old tree come down. Any tree really. It will make a beautiful table.

Porcupines eat trees? I do love seeing that view of a tree. That one would make a great table or yard decoration of some sort. Loved your mailbox post, that was inspired!

Every time I come over to this place I leave thinking I need to get me one of those icon thingys like all your other cool friends. I don't even know how to get one.

The wood will turn to sawdust before it becomes a table If you know what I mean? 2020 is way too soon for Stevie to make a table of it unless he retires soon. LOL

Beautiful piece of wood though!

Beautiful wood. If Steve is too busy maybe you could talk Sling into coming to Idaho and doing it. Sling is good with wood.
