oak 201406_#11

This piece of oak roundwood is about 10cm diameter. The sapwood is really thick, so the heartwood isn't wide enough for me. Not only that; the pith of the branch isn't in the centre of the heartwood. The Kingsteignton Idol is 6cm wide at the shoulders, with the pith running right down the centre. This branch won't do!
