Weird wood

You never know where aliens might attack. I caught this one trying to escape from a partially rotted black walnut log. I had to vaporize it with my laser level.

Very neat. Thanks for sharing.

Black walnut must be an alien species - had to immolate a demon myself:

Those images are the imprints of trans-dimensional travelers who didn't realize trees were omni-dimensional.

That's awesome. You don't mention the size, but that would make a great small table. What a conversation starter. Thanks for posting that.

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.

Unfortunately I don't think it will be very useful, its mostly rotted wood and its only about 12" high. I will try to preserve it somehow.
