Here is a poplar staff that was growing in rocks. It has a unique look all swept one direction. It stands 71" tall and the shaft ranges from 1-3/8" to 2-1/2" wide on a flat diameter. The roots take up a space about 5" by 7" by 9" tall. It was dug and stripped on 8/4/12 and nine days later it still weighs 4#5ozs. Poplar holds a lot of moisture weight and this one will be exceptionally light when it dries down. Poplar stains dark and carves well, just don't seal it until it is totally dry. (ufws117)
