Beautiful crotch figure from an urban Walnut tree salvaged in California. December 6, 2011
Thought you all might enjoy this gift from the wood gods. This log was about 3' wide and 5' long. I drove by an alley in the Capital of California and they were cutting this beauty down. I volunteered to get rid of it for them.
