This listing is for a beautiful large Elm tree slice. Mother nature made this work of art, and I got to lovingly cut, sand, and oil this piece until the tree rings and color stand out for all to see!
This slice has been sanded smooth but not finished sanded. It is unsealed. This piece exhibits beautiful tree rings with a warm reddish brown color, showcasing the awesome shape of the old elm tree it came from (This tree was salvaged from a cutting under a powerline).
The piece has some tiny cracks (see picture), but has fully dried, and shouldn't crack any further. Please be aware, however, that changes in temperature and humidity can cause wood to crack or warp.
This piece would be great for a woodworking project, like a clock, or a centerpiece, a candle stand, etc. Or, if you just love wood, like me, it can hang on the wall. I can outfit the back with a keyhole slot so it can be hung on a nail, just to look at. Any drilling into the wood should be done very slowly and carefully!!
This slice measures approximately 13.5" x 12" at its widest points and is about 1.5" thick.

THE NATURE OF WOOD:
I dry my wood logs and slices before and after cutting, depending on the wood and the item being cut. This is to ensure that the wood will not crack significantly when cut. However, wood can change with temperature and humidity. It can warp and crack. It can even crack after being dried for a long time, depending on conditions. Please don't expose it to direct sunlight, keep it in plastic bags or sealed containers, or expose to high moisture.
