This is another funky birch staff with an actual root "ball" complete with sharp, pointy nodes. The roots that emerge from this one are a little more narrow from one view, occupying a space about 7" by 10" by 9" tall. The root "ball" is about 3-1/2". The shaft has a few gentle curves and it ranges from 1-5/16" to 2" in diameter. This one was dug and peeled on 8/10/21, and three days later it weighs 4#4ozs (for reference.) This one will lose substantial weight when it fully dries and shouldn't be sealed until then. (ufws116)

Great base for those who want to finish on their own. I used some 40 grit sandpaper to smooth off the surface. Packaging was well thought out and effective in protecting the staff.
