I took these pics a while back....and thought it time to share them.........

Well....can anyone guess what wood this is and will this naturally decorated Christmas tree make a bow?

Very interesting, a rare tree indeed. Wonder if the coloring is inside the trunk as well or just on the surface. Can't wait to hear what the bowyers have to say.

Looks like walnut to me. And yes, any tree will make a bow, of sorts.

Way cool tree Terry. Is it in your neck of the woods? My guess would have been a hand-painted banyan tree, just by looking at the exposed roots.
