or at least till it rots away..
A house in town took down a large tree in the front yard and left about 8 feet of trunk.. I thought it was strange they had that big trunk in the yard.. then earlier this year I saw why.. I should have gotten it when fresh carved before varnish or shellacking.. looked nicer when fresh. finally stopped for a pic but was cloudy and a bad angle.. they are around 3 feet long each I would guess
