A peaceful creature, Sidney tends to hide under the broad leaves of hostas so the crows won’t try to have him for lunch.
This wood burl is as hard as stone — actually, harder than soapstone. It didn’t even carve like wood or even stone. The removed wood came off in what can only be described as granules similar to coarse sugar. Lots of minerals must have soaked into the wood over the years! Definitely a challenge.
Please note that the price includes the mandatory Illinois 8percent sales tax on internet sales.
