Was splitting a massive stump piece of Pinoak a few months ago and came across the following. My 27 ton splitter strained against this stump... NO WONDER... The grain goes in circles! Anyone ever seen this? I'm going to take this piece, sand it down, dry it out and tung oil it to make the grain pop and make book ends... The grain your looking at was just under the bark, no pictured is the thickness, its about 4" Anyone seen this kind of thing before?
