Thread: Spalted Red Tip Photinia Root

    Spalted Red Tip Photinia Root

    4 1/2" X 4" finished with Danish Oil and waxed. This one had plenty of natural indents, inclusions and dirt and dirt voids where the root had grown around it and then it came out. The LOML had been wanting a lidded box and this one is a bit different.

    Gorgeous work, Chris.

    Christopher...My first glimps of redtip root. Looks great. I have a bunch of +30 year old redtip all around my house.....Guess it's about time for one to come down.

    It is probably a good thing I don't know what redtip looks like cause if I have some in my yard it might make my life hard for a while(LOML likes her flowers just where they are.) Looks really good Chris.
