Pacific black walnut burl slab, live edge. Super unique shape and absolutely stunning figuring, curl, claro, flame, feathering, ribbon, bear scratch, etc. Now referred to as stump creatures you can see why. Some bug damage and decay on edges which adds to the pieces character, very unique.
Wheel brushed and high pressure water cleaned to remove loose debris from decay as well. Colors and contrasts are crazy over the top. This piece was unearthed, never saw the light of day until extracted from beneath the ground. Borax based bug exterminator twice. Once initially then to add highlight for grain and more bug protection.
Surfaced with surfacing mil both sides, then orbital sanded with 80 grit both sides. Just imagine how this piece will pop when finished. Thicknesses and other measurements in pics. Would make beautiful wall art, table top material, shelf material, taxidermy, this piece screams for resin project, pistol grips, knife scales, etc. This item is made of walnut.
